At the end of this month, the end of an era will be marked with the expiry of my student card, and consequently, my concession Go Card.
This first release card has provided over four years of loyal service to the bearer, and the statistics are staggering. Some $2,600 of electronic money has slipped through the card’s delicate integrated circuits.
The card has transported me a distance of over 35,000km, the distance of Brisbane to London and back, over more than 1,200 trips.
I will miss you, my little green card of joy, but it is time to enter the big, brave adult world.
