Cashless concerns

-

There are two issues with abandoning cash fares on trains (Wellington commuters will be able to use Snapper cards on some trains from October, May 4). Many of the 1 per cent who are homeless have no bank account and cannot afford the fee to buy a Snapper card. They usually pay cash.

Secondly, when the guards go, as they surely will, who will operate the disability ramps?

Both groups are being disadvanta­ged. Brian Jones, Manor Park
