Use of the Check-In CBR app will become mandatory in more places across the Nation’s Capital on Thursday.

From midday, Canberrans will be required to check-in at supermarkets, shopping centres, retail stores, public transport and ride share services.

A new requirement is also in effect, requiring people check-in wherever they go, regardless of how long they’re spending at the particular venue.

Previously, you only had to scan a QR code if you were spending more than 15 minutes in one place.

Children under 16 are not required to check-in anywhere but parents are encouraged to do so on their behalf.

Since announcing the changes two weeks ago, government crews have been busy installing more than 8,000 QR codes across Canberra’s light rail system and its more than 450 strong bus fleet.
