That MyWay upgrade talks have fallen through due costs.Opposition Transport Minister Mark Parton has given bit of a burn towards Chris Steele. But also makes mention that the original upgrade was promised in the 2016 Election & money was allocated in the 2017 budget.https://vm.tiktok.com/ZS3wJHNy/

If she survives long enough for this to be implemented, what's she (and others in a similar position) suppose to do (no photo ID, absolute refusal to use anything other than cash)?

Quote from: Barry Drive on April 24, 2021, 10:41:40 AMTransport Canberra provide a broad range of customer concessions and free travel. It is intended that the new solution will facilitate the concessionary needs of our vulnerable Canberran's [sic] whilst providing opportunities to improve the accessibility of public transport to those who most need it.

Quote from: Bus 400 on April 24, 2021, 01:43:51 PMTo me, it sounds a lot like the TfNSW Opal system with upgrades that are currently being trialled. Even going the way of TfL, who have some regions that won't even accept the Oyster card (use credit cards only).
