A ticket to ride

What a sad lot we are in Melbourne with our woeful public transport ticketing system and the disastrous myki debacle.
Here in London (and the UK general), ticketing simply works! No doubts, no hassles, no problems. Consumers have all manner of choice of payment. They use machines that spew out tickets to order – and quickly.
If we are so bloody good as our various governments would have us believe, why are we fifty years behind the rest of the world?
