So I rang Airtrain several times and several operators asking about discounts from point A to B that included public transport stations...... no discounts available under 10 days.

Get here then told GO CARD gets discount...... it's sitting in draw down south..... Not Happy Jan!

Go card cheaper than cash fares... And you should also check when yours expires next time you're in BNE/OOL/MCY?

Another alternative in future is getting the free DFO and Terminals loop bus. From DFO you could get a 590 to Toombul where you change to the other buses (or a walk to the nearby train station) for a connecting service to the city (or wherever you need to go).

Or from DFO you could get the 590 towards Garden City (via Cannon Hill and Carindale) in the other direction...

I think I did this once, maybe twice, and the result is that it adds significantly to travel time and was not worth the effort. Even worse I imagine during summer months due to heat/humidity. The walk to Mascot in SYD is quicker :p

So today family member produces a GO CARD (NOT their senior) and asks to check credit on it.
Ring find out $59+ via phone call but cannot transfer at station, as has to be done via website 🤦‍♂️
Therefore as per previous posts I was not required to buy a new card as they had it in wallet and did not remember!

Not bad, works out at ~$9.75 per person per trip, a much better price although it really should be the same price as regular fares across the network.
