A new ticketing system will be designed to provide Canberra’s public transport users with convenient and flexible payment methods and real time travel information.
It will provide users of both buses and light rail with some of the most advanced ticketing technology aimed at making it easy to plan, pay for and take public transport, bringing us up to speed with major cities around the world.
The new system will provide flexible payment options to allow you to choose how to pay your fares whether by card, cash, phone or another smart device.
People currently need to purchase and top up a MyWay card and, while a similar travel card will still be an option, the range of payment methods will mean a more user-friendly travel experience.
Your feedback is also that the real time information you are currently receiving is slow and unreliable, and the new ticketing system will improve real time travel updates.
A procurement process for the new ticketing system has commenced and more detail will be provided once that process is complete.
