TransLink is celebrating the sale of the three-millionth go card.
TransLink CEO Neil Scales said go card accounted for more than 80 per cent of travel on the South East Queensland (SEQ) public transport network each day.
"The recent sale of the three-millionth go card is the latest in a series of milestones that indicate the maturing of our smart card system," Mr Scales said.
"This outstanding growth in go card use has helped us to grow and improve the SEQ network.
"It's great to see so many TransLink customers making the most of seamless travel on all TransLink bus, train and ferry services, including Airtrain.
"We are using Australia's best public smart card technology and our customers are the big winners."
Mr Scales said by registering their go card online or through the Call Centre customers could better manage and get the most out of their go card.
"By registering their go card customers can access the card's balance, check their transaction history and activate auto top-up," Mr Scales said.
"We also recently introduced free travel for customers who make more than nine journeys in a Monday to Sunday week.
"This means customers who travel to work and back five days a week get a free trip home on Friday afternoon and the weekend until the last services on Sunday night.
"A 20 per cent off-peak discount also applies from 9am to 3.30pm and after 7pm on weekdays, plus all day on weekends and gazetted public holidays for go card users."
