Hundreds of dossiers on Victorian commuters are being handed to police, sparking calls for tighter controls on personal data linked to millions of myki tickets.

Records obtained by the Herald Sun under Freedom of Information laws show police requested access to people’s myki files 574 times last year, up from 314 in 2013, 127 in 2012 and just 20 in 2011.
