Dear Vline, Group Mass Transit

Hi there,
I don't understand how you can charge so much for Mass Transit?
For 2 people to travel return to Bendigo, leaving on Friday 16:52 service, returning Saturday is $85.20.
For the same 2 people to drive a car up, even a hire car, it is less to cover Petrol, Rent/purchase costs.
How do you justify this Price? It is sooo expensive, if you had a group of 3 or more you would have to have nuts in your head to catch the train, it really does not reflect a society that is encouraging Mass Transit use instead of Clogging our Roads with Cars.
Why don't you give a massive discount to groups?

For example: 2 people get 35% off, 3 people get 40% off, 4 or more people get 50% off fares.
Then you are more competitive with the car, fairly simple.

I look forward to your thoughtful response.
