Metro Tasmania has received $7.5 million from the state government to develop an integrated ticketing system for seamless travel across the public transport network.
The existing GreenCard is an electronic ticketing solution across the metro network, with 84 per cent of Metro passengers using the GreenCard regularly according to 2017-18 figures.
The new system, however, will enable a seamless one-ticket journey across Metro Tasmania, the privately-provided bus services and trans-Derwent ferries.
“Metro Tasmania is now working with key stakeholders to plan the transition to a next-generation integrated ticketing platform that improves the accessibility and value of public transport and supports important customer services such as real-time travel information,” according to a government statement.
The new system will take into account the latest developments such as tap and go technology and payment fares via contactless cards and mobile devices.
