A SMART travel scheme to allow passengers to buy a ticket using various forms of transport has received funding from the Strathclyde Passenger Transport (SPT) and could be in place before April 2016.
The machines make up part of ‘a truly modern transport system’ offering a ‘multi-modal, multi- operator smart card in the west of Scotland’.
The card - similar to the Oyster card used in London - allows customers to have one ticket for their full journey, making transport easier for the customer.
A report to members of the SPT board stated: ‘It is proposed that a grant fund amount of £15,000 be awarded to Nevis Technology.
‘Progress with train operator Abellio is a major step forward in provision.’
