We’re super excited to announce we’ve crossed the 50,000 active user mark for our MyBus 2.0 app.
We wanted to do something special to thank everyone for their support, and we got tired of waiting for the real-time feeds to become available (the launch date has been a roving target…), so we decided to focus our attention on the MyWay recharge.
We’re trying to see what we can do to let users recharge their MyWay card in real-time (think tap your card to your phone type thing) rather than wait for 3-5 business days, but while we try to find the legitimate way to do that, we were wondering if any of you would be interested in recharging your MyWay cards using Bitcoin? Asides from the novelty of the idea, we’re strong supporters of the currency, and would love to bring some legitimate use cases for Canberra. It would also be interesting as it’d be the first transport agency in the world that (indirectly) allowed for use of Bitcoin for public transport.
We’re rolling it out over the next week or two, but wanted to know if it was something anyone thought useful? If not, what would you like to see added?
