Launch of a consultation on possible roll out of Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) to more rail stations

In reference to the Department for Transport’s launch of consultation on possible roll out of Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) to more rail stationsAnthony Smith, chief executive of independent passenger watchdog Transport Focus said: 

“At a stroke millions of passengers journeys could become simpler and quicker. The spread of a pay as you go type system, which already works well in London, is to be welcomed. Assuming it is backed up by the same robust technology, with a clear single help point, then trust in this new system will soon build. However, it will be important to understand how the detail will work. Passengers will want to know how their spend is affected – some prices may go up as well as some coming down”.
