Dublin Bus to follow the example of London: Stopping cash entirely as part of a new plan to reduce travel time.
Dublin Bus to follow the example of London:
For a long time now, Dublin Bus has been encouraging customers to switch from cash to Leap cards. The National Transport Authority (NTA) plans for all commuters to be using the Leap card or a new “account-based” ticketing system, within the next three to five years.
NTA chief executive Anne Graham said:
"We have 70pc of all journeys being done through Leap. This has happened in London, and it's worked. We would encourage more people to move to Leap, and we would like to see cashless services, where you can't pay in cash on the bus" .
The NTA is as also considering an option that will allow people to buy tickets in shops so the driver has one less thing to worry about.
Do you think the new technology will help bring about some Change :) Let us know in the comment section!
