grt.ca is short and easy to remember, but the actual tool to manage your card is located at grteasygofarecard.ca. You can get there from the base grt site but there are three-four clicks required.

It should be one big obvious button to click on and you are direct automatically to the card management site...    I wish people that design websites would actually get to know their audience...

The Region operates very much like a small company in a specialized field, with lots of people who try really hard, but can’t zoom out and look at the bigger picture.

They've been in the wild for months now between the beta program, and high school and corporate passes. They all look the same.

My Corporate Pass has a photo on it. Do school passes?

Ah, I hadn't realized that about the corporate ones.

The school ones I've seen in use don't have photos.

This is really, really, accurate.  Well said.

They also outsource the work to a development agency who should know better, but they almost certainly compete on budget and have a lot of captured knowledge about the Region's processes, properties and expectations.

Photos are only being used for some specialized passes like the corporate pass. The list is somewhere on their website.

I'm just waiting for people to try using their “easy GO fare card” on GO.

Update: Just tried registering my card again and it worked. Guess it can take a bit of time then. Good to know...
