Got back from Perth last night. Had a great time, which you’ll hear about in due course, but first: something we spotted on the Skybus on the way home: Myki reader mounting points — and just like those that first appeared on trams a few years ago, they’re being used as brochure holders at the moment.
Proof, if any was needed, that it’s intended that Skybus is planned to join Myki at some point.
(This particular bus might have been brand new — it also had softer seats than the rock-hard bucket seats most of the Skybus has.)
Update: I’m told some of the Skybus fleet has had these mounting points for a while… which means the status of future Myki support for Skybus is uncertain — it may not have survived the Coalition government’s review of the system in 2011.
