Greater discounts for off-peak journeys, free fares for young people on weekends and a possible new fleet of total mobility vehicles are on the cards for Wellington public transport users.

On the second of a two day-meeting of a Greater Wellington Regional Council subcommittee discussing future fares, councillors heard from students, elderly and disability advocates and local residents on a series of fare changes.
