A 2 hour concession ticket costs me $1.90, so I found that fares were really eating into my pension payment, seeing I need to use PT for getting to the shops, library, etc. Then by asking, I found that I can get a 10 trip ticket for under $14. This can be used every day for 10 days, or as many times in one day as you need to use it. The cost of the 10 trip ticket works out to $1.30 a ticket, compared to $1.90 for a single ticket, a saving of 60 cents on each ticket!
As I live in Australia, I know conditions and fare prices will be different in other countries, but wherever you live, if you need to use public transport regularly, ask around for a better deal!
