Queenslanders say driving cheaper than public transport

RESEARCH has found Queenslanders were more convinced than people in any other Australian state that driving was a cheaper way to get around than public transport, prompting fresh calls for fares to be cut.

A survey by consumer research firm Canstar Blue found 72 per cent of Queenslanders agreed with the statement "I find it's cheaper to drive than use public transport".

That was well ahead of Tasmania (60 per cent), Western Australia (57 per cent), New South Wales (54 per cent), Victoria (53 per cent) and South Australia (50 per cent).

Canstar Blue spokesman Simon Downes said 3000 motorists were surveyed across Australia.

"Respondents in Queensland were by far the most convinced that driving is cheaper than using public transport, but Queenslanders do show a strong willingness to use it more, should costs reduce," he said.
