    Not about the payment methods.

    can disseminate government messages
    If they had to upgrade, I wonder if they could have included some technology to warn you with an app or message on your phone that your parking is about to expire.

    I like it, because by only accepting Octopus the government basically colludes with MTR Corp. That way I at least have choice with whom to do business.

    I am not against more options at all. Problem I see is that most things the gov touches gets fucked up in one way or many other.
