PT Problem of the Day: Some buses have Metcard validators, but no Myki readers

POTD: Buses without Myki readers

PTUA members have recently noticed a number of buses without Myki readers aboard. It appears new vehicles are not being fully kitted out with Myki devices before going into service — although they are managing to get all the Metcard equipment installed.

On this bus, running on route 626, the driver waved bemused Myki cardholders aboard, which would mean in some cases they got a free ride.
