Would you support flat rate public transport?

Hey folks. I currently live in Sherwood, Brisbane. Three train stations further and you're in Darra which I believe is end of Brisbane City Council region but just walking along the street, you wouldn't know this, it's still just "suburbia". But on the train, you're now in a different zone and it's more expensive. But the real kicker is that the train only goes half as often.
It's the same thing re: the bus. The further out you get from the city, the more expensive the bus is and the crappier a service you get.
Maybe I'm generalising here but I'm sure there's a correlation between distance to the city and income.
Seems to me, if you're rich and live in the inner suburbs you get really good cheap(er) public transport but if you live out the sticks,you can wait an hour for your bus and pay for the privilege.
So, would you support flat rate ticketing?
0Yes, even though would be more expensive for me.
1Yes, my tickets will be cheaper.
3Yes, but I don't get public transport at all.
0No, and I don't get public transport.
16No, it would make my tickets more expensive.
3No, even though it would be cheaper for me.
