New Rail Fares announced

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

The premier has announced a new rail fare structure that is set to benefit upper mountains residents substantially.

The new ticket types includes the MyMulti unlimited rail/travel/ferry pass for $57 a week for mountains locals. If you just need the train component you can save a dollar. This compares to a Leura-City weekly price currently of $66. Occasional users can buy a one day MyMulti ticket for $20.

Also cut are single ticket prices with Katoomba to the City at $7.80 compared to the current $12.20. Off-peak return tickets also drop substantially from $16.80 to $10.80.

New rates will be available from April 18 2010, and full details are at the MyZone website.

Local Election Results – Ward 1

Sunday, September 14th, 2008

The primary vote results have been tabulated, and there is a pretty even spread. The Greens look to have lead the way, with the ALP and Independents Terri Hamilton and Janet Mays also polling well.

The close race means preferences will be very important in deciding who gets the nod for the three vacancies. See the latest results at the AEC website.
