Media Release has been posted. https://www.cmtedd.act.gov.au/open_government/inform/act_government_media_releases/act-transport-canberra-and-city-services-media-releases/2016/new-bus-fares-from-20-january-2018

It mentions that the free off peak MyWay fare for concessions will continue pending an evaluation.

Bus400 has alerted me to the fact that the new fare schedule was tabled in the Legislative Assembly this week. All MyWay fares will go up by exactly 2.5%.

New fares will take effect on Saturday 5 January 2019. They are as follows -

Cash
Adult       Concession
Single trip       $5.00$2.50
Daily$9.60$4.80

MyWay
Adult      Concession    School       Tertiary
Peak$3.22$1.61$1.61$1.61
Off peak$2.55$0.89$1.61$1.61
School Day$1.22$1.61
Weekend Daily cap    $5.87$2.17$2.17$2.17

Since the determination sets only the maximum fare, the concession off-peak fare and City Loop can still be free of charge at Transport Canberra's discretion.

Again?! Well at least this time it'll be easier to remember the values for the cash fares.

Any chance of Barry Drive working out the MyWay fares inclusive of the BPAY Discount? :)
