New smartcard for NI bus & rail 7 September 2016

A new smartcard is to be introduced to make buying bus and train tickets quicker and easier in Northern Ireland (via BBC News)

 

Bus

 

Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard said the £45m investment project would deliver a modernised ticketing system which would “transform travel” and lead to more people using public transport.

Almost 300 new ticketing machines will be installed at bus stops and train halts.

The scheme is expected to be put in place in 2018.

Mr Hazzard said the new programme for government envisages increasing the number of people using public transport.

“A high quality public transport infrastructure is fundamental to encouraging people to use our buses and trains,” said Mr Hazzard.

This innovative ticketing system will deliver long term benefits and transform how we access public transport across the region,” he said.

“The current ticketing system was introduced 15 years ago and serves around 80 million passenger journeys every year.

“This programme will deliver a modern, efficient and convenient ticketing system that will benefit passengers and lead to greater efficiencies. It will improve the passenger experience.”
