    Things to note:

    • You must pay a membership fee ($30)

    • If paying by credit card you must pay a surcharge (at least $20)

    • You must be registered (i.e. no anonymity)

    • You cannot transfer the card to anyone else

    If you're lucky enough to know your job is safe for 12 months (and not moving house/offices to change your travel routine), and don't mind the government being able to track your travel patterns, it's a good saving given that we're being shafted yet again at well-above inflation rates for a sub-standard public transport system.

    •  

      If you do change your travel routine, you can get a pro-rata refund on the remaining value of the pass (they count it as 325 days though since 40 days are free on a yearly).

    Used to always stock up on metcards a bit when a price rise was imminent, thanks to myki you can't do that any more :(

    •  

      I think you can buy a monthly (or longer) ticket that runs into the new year. I don't think it adds extra for the price hike, but I haven't confirmed it this year yet.

        yes, you can pre-pay for myki pass and activate it whenever you like… unfortunately, you can only store one pass per card…

        •  

          You can have two passes on a card, one that's currently active and one that will activate afterwards.

      I still have a Metcard I purchased before the GST came in :D

      •  

        Make sure you convert its remaining value into Myki credit before it's too late! Metcards cannot be used after December 29.

        Hold onto it for when they scrap myki and switch back to Metcard

      too bad u cannot get concession if your on graduate course :( unless u got health care card

    •  

      Yeah you have to be a full time student in an undergrad course sadly. Nothing for part time, postgrad or apprentices

    It is a great deal if its genuine… I tried to register, the bank deposit / pay by BSB seems bogus…. It doesnt provide a reference number to identify who paid. Tried with Credit Card which links to paypal, but not a straight forward transaction as ebay or other websites.

    Hope no one loses money….

      It's genuine, the PTUA is a known organisation and are often quoted in the newspapers.
      Also I just registered using direct deposit and it gives you a reference number on the same page it gives the invoice/payment details.

    have anyone bought it yet?

    I get confused with their payment.

    I just bought one. It was a bit confusing, but the customer help was very good.
    The reference number was missing from the final page and it didn't include the $30 member fee in the final confirmation page. I paid the right amount of $1215 and it was all sorted in emails afterwards.
    If you have the money to get it, I'm sure it's going to be worth it in the long run.
