Police use Go Card to track commuters

POLICE are tracking commuters' movements on Brisbane public transport using their Go Card records.

Officers are using the technology to not only pinpoint the movements of criminal suspects but also potential witnesses.

One woman has told brisbanetimes.com.au she was contacted last month as part of a murder probe after police tracked her down via her Go Card, which is registered with her details by TransLink.

Police confirmed Go Card records had been used as part of an investigation into a New Farm murder last month.
