Transit Australia - Australia's urban passenger transport journal

Notice regarding digital issue pricing

When first establishing the digital pricing of Transit Australia we were advised that we should use the Apple Store pricing tiers and that pricing from other outlets would reflect those prices. We set the price as low as possible to help promote sales.

In mid-October, without notice, Apple changed all of its pricing levels resulting in price increases at all outlets. These increases are somewhat steep, but when we examined the new pricing tiers, we discovered that the next level down in price is lower than the original prices and one that we cannot sustain.

It would seem that there is little that we can do other than apologise to subscribers.

Transit Australia

The journal follows developments in the urban passenger transport industry across Australia and New Zealand.

Published monthly by Transit Australia Digital.

Transit Australia Journal

The journal is unique in that it considers all modes: Both heavy and light rail, ferry and bus, as well as occasional feature articles focussing on information, fares and ticketing, new technologies, accessibility and some of the political and environmental aspects of urban passenger transport; all considered within the context of the relationship between land use planning and transport.
