The Scottish Government consulted on The Future of Smart Ticketing, asking for views on how to develop smart ticketing in Scotland.
- CAS recommends that regardless of the option which the Scottish Government chooses it is key that there are offline ways in which to purchase cards; buy tickets; and/or top-up cards
- CAS recommends that in going forward the Scottish Government remains open to multiple types of smart ticketing
- It is important that any changes which are made are well publicised and allow sufficient time for the public to be informed of these changes
- It is important that smart ticketing is available on multiple modes of transport and from multiple operators
