Number of Go Card top-up facilities may be expanded

COMMUTERS could soon be topping up their Go Cards at supermarkets, petrol stations and newsagents under a State Government plan.

Transport Minister Scott Emerson announced the Government would put out to tender a "next generation retail contract" that could see the number of Go Card retailers expanded.

The plan could see Go Card top-up facilities integrated into grocery stores, petrol stations and supermarkets.

"Availability of Go Cards facilities is one of the biggest issues people raise with me and this would deliver more options to purchase, top-up, check their balance or change expiry dates," Mr Emerson said.

There are currently 580 spots where commuters can purchase or top up their Go Cards to enable them to travel on public transport in south-east Queensland.
