Honestly, what is the point of buying a myki if you only travel, say, once a year?

Or less! Which is precisely my point as well.

I am not against the purchase price (or my preference, a deposit) of a Myki card for regular users, I am just against charging people what I regard as an exorbitant fee for something  that they may only use once or twice in their lifetime, and then throw away once they finish their trip.

Which is why I like the idea of the $6/3 fee being replaced by a deposit (if management still persist in having some sort of charge)....you get back your deposit when you hand in your Myki card (in good condition) once you no longer need it

A quote was made in another thread by Revenue, I know it has probably been answered before but I haven't really been following the Myki threads until recently.


Metcard had a number of issues:



- It did not cover all of Victoria (eg. you can't easily purchase a ticket from, say, Prahran to Bendigo)

I'm still waiting to be able to catch a bus from my home in suburban Melbourne, to the train station then on a V/Line train to work, followed by the local town bus to work.

All of this I can do with a V/Line ticket, but what is annoying is if I do not get the ticket the day before I am left off slugged a Zone 2, 2 hour price on my myki to get me on the bus from home to the train station. Plus another Zone 2 fare to get to my work, which also is in a Zone 2 category just a V/Line fare.

People are tired of waiting for such features, the quicker it is on V/Line and across the board the better!

I think that the system should be like Citylink where you pay $50 to open an account with an e-tag
