Queensland - charging fares for public transport leads to bad health

brisbanetimes : "Dr Burke, also a Heart Foundation spokesman, said more than 80 per cent of trips taken in the southeast were by car and one third of those trips were less than three kilometres.

He said the high cost of Queensland’s public transport network discouraged many people from using it.

As a result, he said many people were not getting the 30 minutes of incidental, low-intensity exercise each day that often came with venturing to and from public transport access points and that could have enormous preventative health benefits."
