Validating surveys reliability validity

The Myki card, if placed correctly in a wallet, does not need to be removed to be validated.However, because wallets often contain multiple cards with smart chips capable of being interpreted by the reader system in place by Myki, regardless of their applicability to transport, simply placing a wallet containing a Myki card against a reader proves problematic as the card-reading technology is incapable of consistently distinguishing between Myki and non-Myki smart card chips.

The value stored on the card is called "Myki money".Prior to the introduction of Myki a separate fare and ticketing system existed for V/Line (country) services.
