With public transport providers facing cost pressures, they are particularly keen to find new ways to fund public transport.
What is the NSW government’s proposed solution? Netflix style subscriptions.
“We will see people subscribe to mobility into the future in the same way they subscribe to software through computers and Netflix on their television,” proposes NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance.
A subscription for a government service sounds like a tax to this bureau, but the government should be commended for creative thinking outside of the box for the important issue of transport.
