Transport for the North's next step in contactless travel

Quote

Interesting that TfN are claiming credit for Northern's introduction of "flexi-seasons" - it's not clear what their contribution has been. People have been talking about this for years. It's a very limited toe in the water - which is just about where TOCs are with ITSO ticketing.

I suspect that the "re-awakening" is more to do with the new, more PR-savvy IST director, than any real increase in their work rate.
