EFTPOS on stations
Over the last few months Eftpos has begun being installed on train station ticketing machines. This makes it easier for people to access the machines without needing cash. It's particularly good for people buying expensive tickets such as weeklies and MyZone tickets. The minimum amount, however, has been removed so even small transactions are now accepted.
The downside of this is that, in the future, there may be a push to reduce the number of station staff.
