PT Problem of the Day: Are the new #Myki gates reliable enough?

Myki gates: not always reliable

The new Myki-only gates installed at stations are certainly more informative for Myki users than the old hybrid Metcard gates.

But they don’t seem any faster, and worse, they appear to suffer from reliability problems. We’ve had many sightings of individual gates going out of service, and recently some cases of entire banks of gates being inoperable in peak hour.

The first set of Myki-only gates was installed at Parliament back in October 2010 — one would hope they’d have ironed out any problems by now.
