Me and a mate, in Perth WA, bought all day tickets one day, because we knew we'd be out all night - Friday night, etc...
Trains run till 2am, so we think it's all good.
$7.50 a ticket each.
This is at 8:30pm just before we head out. We do our rubbish firday night stuff, and it's about 12:45 and we're at the main Train station. Just as
go to get on,
sure, we show them, all days, purchased at 8:30pm this night.... Expired? WTF?
Expired at Midnight... "But the trains run till 2am? "
So they wouldn't let us on at near 1am, on a friday night. Never again we got all days.
Not to mention if you buy an all day before 9am, it's invalid. After 9am only. Lol.. Because workers were taking advantage of it.
Don't even ask about the zoning... You can go from the city, take a 45 minute trip up a line, and get off for $3.50. 3 Zones. But go one more stop,
it's $4.75 or something. A zone change. Zone 4.
And the really stupid crap is, if you live one stop away from it, you still pay a 4 zone fare. just to go 1 stop.
Hrrrrhrhr trains... I hate them.
