Was at Newport earlier.  The ticket machine screen has been scratched and tagged.  All validators have been scratched as well.

Seems CCTV is no deterrent to the ferrals.

During the occupation on Saturday night, There was a bunch of Ferals around smashing beer bottles on the ramp -- and ofcourse the AO's were nowhere to be seen... except out near the buses... and ofcourse they weren't doing anything (I got flatout ignored, as usual, when I asked which bus went express to Werribee)

I dare say it was the same ferals.

You can bold East Ringwood, Bayswater and Boronia

as a side note, Thusfar I've seen 3 Myki Validators which have said "Please Scan Card" -- To which they don't respond when this is done.

THE SYSTEM IS DEFECTIVE! Razz

I've seen that a few times and the red light is illuminated, I dare say that's because it's got an older version of software or a newer version of software which can't display the demo screen (ie. Getting Ready for Myki) -- I don't think it means anything.

What does concern me, however it could just be old software, is that on certain B2s with it, It says messages like "Unable to start application, Please contact service operative" or similar.

I assume all these problems will be ironed out before November though, I still have faith in the project (even though I don't have my Myki anymore!)

Every station on the Hurstbridge Line now appears to have had scanners installed. Can't confirm Wattle Glen and Hurstbridge though. Diamond Creek and Macleod have the machines and I imagine most of the other stations do as well but I can't confirm as I could only observe from the train. Excuse my lack of acronyms... I'm not with all that  Laughing

Also noticed scanners on board the 560 (East West)

I'm not sure how valuable this information is... but Echuca isn't done... nor will it feature a vending machine or balance check device, Just a single FPD on the platform.
  Revenue Chief Commissioner

Most V/Line stations will only have FPDs, and won't have SEMs or CVMs. Conductors on board will be able to assist customers. There will be CVMs at major V/Line stations within the 'commuter' belt of Melbourne.  Over time, I suspect more and more V/Line stations will be fitted with CVMs as patronage increases - but its not really worth it for stations with low patronage that only get three trains a day.

Ah, thank you.  (I was a bit confused when I saw it Shocked

Will the ticket office have card dispenser, then?
  Revenue Chief Commissioner

The Albury ticket office will have a TOT (Ticket Office Machine) that will sell and reload cards (as well as sell short term tickets). The TOT is used by staff. There are no plans to install vending machines at most regional stations as staff will have enough time to sell and reload tickets. They'll have even more time as many regular users will already have myki cards and will choose to reload at retail agents, online, etc...   Very Happy

However, major V/Line stations in the commuter belt will have vending machines.

In metropolitan Melbourne we make about two thirds of our revenue from periodicals and bulk purchased tickets (with the number of people purchasing short term tickets - such as individual two hours tickets - shrinking fast).

One of the disadvantages that V/Line has faced is that if you have someone travelling three days a week - or only travelling one way as they get a lift in one direction - then all these customers need to line up to purchase a ticket each time they travel. These customers will transition over to myki pretty smoothly. So I'm expecting that this will reduce the size of the queues at the V/Line ticket office. This will obviously have bigger benefits in the V/Line 'commuter belt' - but that's good for long distance customers too as shorter lines at Southern Cross are good for everyone.

It will be VERY interesting how quickly the number of tickets sold by V/Line staff (both at stations and by conductors) will decrease. I'm expecting an initial fall in sales and then a slow decline in sales as customer switch to the new system.
