SupaNews for Strathpine go card Customers

16/08/2012

Pine Rivers commuters can now buy, top up and change the expiry date of their go cards at Strathpine's Westfield Shopping Centre.

Member for Pine Rivers Seath Holswich has welcomed the decision to enable Supanews Strathpine to have a full range of go card capabilities.

Mr Holswich led the campaign for these facilities at Strathpine SupaNews. In the lead up to this year's state election he coordinated a petition requesting these changes for Pine Rivers go card users.

"I am proud to be able to deliver this important service for Pine Rivers commuters," Mr Holswich said.

"This will make life easier for customers, providing a convenient alternative for Pine Rivers go card users."

"Customers can buy, top up and register their go cards, change an expiry date, and obtain a refund or a copy of their last ten transactions at the newsagent."

Managing Director of Supanews Retail Adrian Gaskin was pleased to partner with TransLink to provide go card services to local customers.

"SupaNews Strathpine is delighted to be able to offer go card services to the Strathpine community," Mr Gaskin said.

"We sell go cards in many other Supanews stores, and we understand how important it is to be able to quickly top up your go card with a retailer who can answer your go card questions."

Deputy-Director General for the TransLink division Neil Scales said the go card offered customers numerous advantages.

"go card makes travel across south-east Queensland easier and cheaper with go card fares being 30 per cent cheaper than paper tickets as well as a frequent user and 20 per cent off-peak discounts," Mr Scales said.

"As well as selected retailers, customers can access go card services from ticket offices and fare machines at train stations and major bus interchanges.

"With more than three million go cards issued across the TransLink network, go cards are now used for more than 80 per cent of all weekday trips."
