Paperless rail travel within the next eight years?

RailTickets

The move is part of plans to push Britain towards a cashless, paperless society in which people use cards or mobile phones to pay for restaurant meals, checking in at airports – and everything in between.

Paper train tickets will become extinct and commuters will have to use smart phones under plans unveiled by ministers. <http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/road-and-rail-transport/12075299/End-of-the-paper-train-ticket-as-railways-go-paperless.html>

The new ticketing system would “improve the experience” of travelling by rail. The rail industry wants to respond to the needs of their customers and understands the importance of modernising train tickets so that passengers are no longer reliant on the old orange paper format.

They are in the early stages of exploring how passengers could pay for and store tickets on their contactless credit or debit cards as part of a wider aim to improve the experience of rail passengers and move towards smarter types of ticket.

But what about those less ‘tech savvy’ commuters amongst us?

Do you think we will see an end to our iconic orange tickets?

Will Paper tickets become a thing of the past?
