    Myki is one of the world’s largest smart ticketing systems, with more than 17 million active cards and 700 million transactions each year. It has been available to Melbourne public transport use4rs since 2009.

    Mobile myki was introduced to a limited number of users last year, allowing passengers to buy a myki, top up, touch on and off using their Android smartphone. Following a successful first phase trial with a limited, industry-based test group, the State Government is seeking up to 4,000 passengers to test the technology.

    Passengers using Mobile myki in the first phase of the trial were able to top up in a matter of seconds, without having to queue for a ticket machine, giving evidence that this method is quick and convenient. Almost 90% of users were satisfied with Mobile Myki and rated the speed of topping up as either good or very good.

    Mobile myki uses all existing myki ticket gates and readers across trains, trams and buses in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria, without the need for any new infrastructure.

    Passengers will be able to buy Full Fare, Concession, Child and Senior Mobile myki’s using both myki money and myki pass. Auto top up will also be available.

    Work continues to explore options for making Mobile myki available on other smartphones. The existing physical myki card will remain in use across the network during and after the trial.

    Passengers wishing to take part in the public trial can register their interest at ptv.vic.gov.au/mobilemyki.
