I saw the thread about Vline possibly expanding to Wagga Wagga.
That got me thinking..... Vline today offers travel to Canberra.
I checked the Vline web site for a return ticket between Canberra and Albury.
That obviously is a journey completely outside of Victoria.
The Vline price was $84.
I then looked at Greyhound bus and how much it costs.
Greyhound charges $115 for return ticket between Canberra and Albury.
So Vline today is currently subsidising a journey that is completely outside Victoria, by approximately $30.
I think everyone would agree, that is extremely stupid.
Vline should match Greyhound (or another private company's) price, for any journey that is partially (or completely) outside of Victoria.
