Brisbane’s public transportation system using translink couldn’t have been better. Sure there were times the bus was late, you forget to flag them down, or they don’t come at all. But their gocard system was so convenient – swipe on, swipe off. No hase buying individual ride tickets. Can you imagine? I took a minimum of 4 buses every day. That would be a lot of paper tickets and payments for rides. I’m realizing this now because Sydney doesn’t have the same system. You have to get a ride ticket for the ferry from the ticket booth and bus one from a 7-11. At least it’s will effectively take me to Bondi Beach!
