Quote from: Martin on April 28, 2010, 01:48:04 pmThe info has now been added. http://www.action.act.gov.au/myway.html
QuoteYou will save on bus fares. The MyWay card ensures you pay the cheapest available fare every time. As a bonus, you receive a further discount when you use the Autoload and B-pay options. Regular users can get free travel when they reach a monthly limit.
Quote from: Maxious on April 28, 2010, 02:32:52 pmI am intrigued! How will it be cheapest compared to monthly tickets? And if you're using a monthly ticket above and beyond (6 days of 2 daily trips), will that be enough for the monthly limit? Or is it based on the amount you recharge per month ($40/$80 a month enough?)
Quote from: Chris_Guru on April 28, 2010, 02:40:15 pmPossibly you'll be charged $3.80 for an adult if you fail to tag off, if you do tag off you'll pay the faresaver 10 price for 1 ride. Only a guess but it seems the logical option.
QuoteUsers must touch the Oyster card only once at the point of boarding. Because London buses have a single flat fare, there is no need to calculate an end point of the journey.
Quote from: Martin on April 29, 2010, 09:55:40 amAccording to Wikipedia:But there is a maximum (default) fare for rail journeys of £6 during peak and £4.30 at other times plus there is a penalty fare of £50 which can be imposed for failing to touch out.
Quote from: p_stampy on May 11, 2010, 06:29:49 amI was thinking about this last night... why doesn't it just work the same way as it does now (one swipe lasts 90 minutes). The tagging off seems like a pain in the arse. I say that meaning mostly at interchanges where everyone is rushing around, not in the suburbs when you're the 3rd last person to hop off...
Quote from: Sir Pompously on June 10, 2010, 06:32:13 pmThat is possible but the same fare structure is difficult.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on June 10, 2010, 06:42:24 pmI have a feeling that he means that ACTION and Deanes retain the same (current) fare structure, as opposed to them having the same (identical) fare structure. But if I'm correct, it wasn't the best wording.

QuotePilot Test - During August and September ten ACTION buses will be fitted with MyWay equipment for a small scale test to be conducted by ACTION staff and contractors. Trial Period - During September-November 2010 a larger scale test of onboard equipment and the MyWay processing system will be conducted.
QuoteNew paper tickets for cash faresACTION is fitting new equipment to buses in preparation for the MyWay smartcard system later in the year.Some buses now have a new bus driver console and smartcard reader fitted. New driver console - If you pay by cash when boarding an ACTION bus you may now be issued with a new cash fare ticket. The paper ticket is time stamped and allows you to catch other buses for free within the 90 minute transfer time.When issued with one of the new paper tickets, remember to keep the ticket to show the driver of the next bus you are catching.
Quote from: Bus 400 on August 24, 2010, 07:33:44 pmDoes this mean we can't validate the cards [or] purchase daily tickets on these buses anymore?
QuotePassengers will still be able to use their pre-paid magnetic stripe tickets on all ACTION buses until the introduction of the MyWay system.
Quote from: smitho on August 24, 2010, 09:27:49 pmI still have a partially used pack of the old tear-off style 'Fare Go' tickets (equivalent to Faresaver 10) somewhere!Perhaps it's time I asked for a refund....
