Smart­phone tick­et­ing trial

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

Sco­tRail is in­tro­duc­ing a new on­line tick­et­ing sys­tem, al­low­ing pas­sen­gers to down­load tick­ets on to their smart­phones.

The sys­tem will be built into Sco­tRail’s ex­ist­ing smart­phone app, with pop­u­lar sin­gle and re­turn tick­ets to be the first made avail­able in an im­mi­nent pi­lot project.

De­vel­oped by tech­nol­ogy com­pany Ram­bus Inc, the app will al­low cus­tomers to pur­chase and down­load tick­ets, and then scan through ticket gates with their phone.

A wider roll­out to all routes and ticket types is planned in fu­ture.
