More problems with myki:
JUST 4 per cent of the 587,000 trips taken each day on Melbourne’s trains are paid for using the new myki smartcard, leaked figures have shown.
And user numbers – tightly held by the government but leaked to the opposition last week – show thousands of myki users either failing to ”touch off” as they exit railway stations, or being unable to because equipment is broken.
The leaked figures show many of these myki users are being charged a higher ”default” fare as a result of not scanning off the system.
What are the odds that the State Government deals with this problem by speeding up the phase-out of the still-available alternatives?
