New Ticketing System Issue


The A.C.T.’s new ticketing system for public transport may be out of date as soon as it gets brought into service.

Transport Canberra’s “ MyWay+ ” ticketing system relies on the Optus 3G mobile phone network,

But it’s the same 3G Network, which the telecommunications company plans to switch off in September.

There’s also a question mark hanging over whether the next generation ticketing system would be installed before the network shut-off.

Chief minister ANDREW BARR says the Government has commissioned multiple initiatives to “Negate or minimise” the impact of the 3G network shutdown.

Most of the hardware for the new system remains in storage.
