Yesterday the Napthine government announced plans to scrap the zoning system for Melbourne’s public transport. This means an overhaul of zone 2, making travel within all of Melbourne a flat rate. Hampton Station is currently the second to last stop on the Sandringham line yet the first zone 2 station.

The scrapping of zone 2 is great news for all Hampton residents, businesses and workers - meaning travel to and from Hampton will be significantly cheaper. Currently a Zone 1 & 2 ticket costs $12.12 a day, deeming public transport too expensive for many. This should bring the cost down for zone 1 and 2 commuters by about $5.

This change will result in Hampton Street being more accessible for people coming from other parts of Melbourne, and that’s exactly what we want - more people coming to enjoy our beautiful and vibrant street.

The change is set to take effect on the 1 January. Check out the full story over on The Age website.
