Will the T-card sink or swim?

Will it sink? Will it swim? Have your say in Computerworld's Poll

The T-card is back. Remember it flopped back in 2008, after the NSW government dropped $95 million on it?

Well, Cubic Transport Systems - the company behind London's Oyster card that runs its buses and the tube - has picked up the T-Card as part of the Pearl Consortium. It has three years to get it running from the Hunter to Wollongong, Sydney, the Blue Mountains and Illawarra.

The $1.2 billion smartcard integrated ticketing system will provide NSW with a system similar to the $1.35 billion MyKi system in Victoria, but hopefully without the problems.

The T-card previously failed in the hands of ERG and could cost taxpayers more than $300 million.
