Free early bird plan good

The proposed plan to have a free train travel for commuters who reach their destination by 7 am sounds like a very good idea.

This will be trialed on the Frankston and Sydenham lines from late October and if successful will be implemented on the rest of the network. I don't use any of these two lines but I hope that the people on these two lines will make it successful so that it can be extended to other lines.

The plan is of direct benefit to those people who currently reach their destination before 7 am but can also be used by commuters who currently start work as late as 7.30 am if they prepared to arrive a bit early.

I think its also good for all those who have flexible working hours and that will also mean an early finish and thats not bad in the summer months. However, if you live a bit further from your destination it can mean leaving home just after 6 am which may prove to be a bit difficult especially at the start and moreso in the winter months.

I hope we will get updates on how the trial is going just to know what's happening.
