Greencard users now get a discounted fare when they USE their Greencard (like the old Croutz system). ie: Instead of taking a $2.60 short trip, it will only deduct $2.08 from your Greencard. In real terms, Greencard users get 20% discount, so not only have fares gone UP, but discounts have gone DOWN. Notification NOT given earlier, so patrons could not double-dip.
I remember years ago, (1) bloke @ Margate used to buy $300 worth of Budget 10 tickets just before the fares went up. Unfortunately, AS USUAL, the drivers will cop the brunt of abuse NOT those who make these bloody decisions. After all, who gives a sh#t about the drivers
The other MAJOR fare increase is student/child fare has gone up to $1.30, the 1st time in about 15yrs. Likewise NON-urban students also are NOW INLINE with urban students, ALL now paying $1.30. Non-urban student UP from $0.90. Concession Day Trippers are now $3.20 up from $3 and Day Rovers are actually $4.80 up from $4.60

Could not help but thinking that if it were at Metro it would set off the equivalent of the Spanish Inquisition. Ah how the standards back home are so much better.
