Smart Ticketing Delivery Board

This article on the Rail Technology web site has a section entitled Smart Ticketing Delivery Board.

This is the opening paragraph of the section.

Elsewhere in his speech Grayling announced his vision to introduce smart ticketing across Britain’s railway network, enabling passengers to use mobile phones, contactless cards or smart cards to buy their tickets along with more pay-as-you-go options.

I’m glad to see contactless cards mentioned, as in my view there is no other way to go.

Why shouldn’t one contactless credit or bank card get me all over the UK? Or Europe for that matter? But that’s being small. If I can use my Amex card in a restaurant, why can’t I use it on the train, bus or tram? Or even a plane!
