Public transport users, we’ve got some good and bad news for you. And no, it’s not another announcement about the Metro Tunnel works.
We’ll start you off with the good news first: from Thursday 28 March 2019, myki will be going mobile. That’s right: no more waiting in a never-ending line just to top up your myki at the beginning of the month.
With Mobile myki you’ll be able to top up on the go, touch on and off with your phone, know your balance in real time and even view your travel history, which sounds like music to every commuter’s ears.
Now for the bad news: this new technology is only available for Android phone users for the time being, via the Google PayTM app. That means that those of us with iPhones need to wait a little while longer to skip lines and see just how many late-night tram rides we’ve hopped on last weekend.
On the bright side, there might be fewer people queuing up to top their myki up at the last minute, so at least there’s that.
You can find out more about Mobile myki on the PTV website.
In the meantime, find out how the Metro Tunnel works might be affecting your commute this April.
