You could soon be able to touch on to public transport in Melbourne with your phone.
Myki, Melbourne’s public transport ticketing system, will trial a new app for 1000 specially selected users who will be able to tap on and off, and pay for their travel on their mobile phone.
The trial, which will cost up to $3million, will work with existing infrastructure.
If the trial is success it means the days of fumbling for a card will be no longer.
The trial is expected to run until early 2019 – after that – if it’s successful it will be rolled out to all PT users.
