By Mr Rattenbury, Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, dated 18 March 2013, in response to a petition lodged by Ms Gallagher on 12 February 2013 concerning the provision of MyWay terminals for all group centres.

MyWay terminals—petition No 1-13

The response read as follows:

The ACT Government notes the petition submitted by the petitioners, tabled by Ms Gallagher MLA on 12 February 2013 and makes the following comments:

The ACT Government recognises the need to provide convenient access to MyWay recharge facilities and is expanding the number of MyWay recharge options.

At present, MyWay recharge agent facilities are located in all five of Canberra’s town centres and eight of its 19 group centres.

A tender process is currently underway to implement 10 new agent facilities. It is expected that six will be located in group centre, resulting in 14 of 19 group centres having MyWay recharge agent facilities. The allocation of recharge agent facilities throughout the Territory is based on the planning undertaken through the Transport for Canberra plan.

Expansion of the MyWay recharge agent facilities to the remaining group centres is dependent on funding allocations, user demand and interest from private enterprise.

The list of MyWay recharge agents is available at:

In addition to using recharge agents, MyWay users can also recharge their MyWay cards online or over the telephone.
