Included in the list of projects gone bad that it investigated was our old favourite Myki, with some interesting findings on the timings and costings. Myki fares are based on the time and zone fares used under the previous Metcard system (with zones expanded to cover the V/Line commuter belt), with the exception of the single trip "City Saver" fare which was not made available under the Myki system.
