Quote from: Bus 400 on October 21, 2010, 09:08:06 pm cool thing is the website at the bottom of the brochure is http://www.transport.act.gov.au this takes you directly to the MyWay page on the ACTION website.
QuoteThe MyWay page has been updated to include when the MyWay cards will be available (Mid January 2011) & when the magnetic cards will no longer be able to be used (April 2011). Then after 2011, the left over value from old magnetic cards can't be transferred.
Quote from: smitho on November 22, 2010, 08:30:03 pmNew MyWay software was being trialled by several Tuggy drivers yesterday; if it works, it will avoid the need for drivers to 'select trip' at both the depot and again at the interchange when starting out. Also featured the enlarged and simplified digital clock - big improvement.
QuoteACTION trials electronic ticketingAbout 350 Canberra commuters are taking part in a trial of ACTION's new electronic bus ticketing system.The MyWay smart card is being trialed throughout December by a mix of students, adults and pensioners.Tom Elliott from the Department of Territory and Municipal Services says the trial will help to identify any problems before the $8 million system is rolled out to all bus users."It's a very important step for us to make sure all the work we've been doing on ensuring the processes of recording patronage data and revenue in fact works and also to get some feedback from passengers," he said."We're really testing it to see if it's actually going to function well for us or not and refine it before we do a 'go live' to the general public."Mr Elliott says the trial could be extended if needed."If all goes well and the customer feedback is good, our trial users give us a bit of a tick and say 'yeah that worked well for me', or if they give us good feedback that's nice and easy for us to practically adapt and implement then we would be hoping to release this to the general public sometime in January," he said.http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2010/12/06/3085866.htm
Quotewhy is the card reader set at a relatively low height?This has been done to conform to mobility access requirements.
QuoteDo I have to remove the MyWay card from my wallet or purse to tag on and tag off?The card reader should be able to read your card while it is inside your wallet or purse, but it is recommended it is kept away from other similar cards that may cause communication errors. Remember to check the display on the card reader and listen for the tone to ensure your card has been read correctly each time you tag on and tag off.
Quote from: MyWay on December 08, 2010, 01:05:26 pmThe Road Transport (Public Passenger Services) Regular Route Services Maximum Fares Determination 2010 (No 1) (the legislative instrument which controls ACTION's fares) has not been updated to take MyWay into account. Given that MyWay cards are being accepted as payment of bus fares, I wonder what the legal implications are.
Quote from: MyWay on February 11, 2011, 12:52:58 pmLatest news: Seniors Card holders are being converted over to MyWay cards in February, and general public MyWay cards should be available from early March. Pre-loaded $20 cards will be sold at existing ticket agencies.

Quote from: MyWay on March 04, 2011, 11:10:07 pmThe new brochure is still silent about the times when off-peak fares apply.

Quote from: ACTbusspotter on February 17, 2011, 01:41:10 pmThere is insufficient information about how the default fare (failure to tag off) will work - especially when you consider that the Concession default fare is more than the weekend daily cap. (Daily cap is defined as "the maximum amount charged for MyWay smart card fares on a daily basis." Since the default fare is included in the MyWay fare schedule, then how can the default fare exceed the daily cap?) Similar question for the Monthly Trip Cap and the School Term ticket.
