I’m sure shops could sell single use tickets for that edge case, but the London Underground works just fine cashless and indeed London’s buses have been cashless since 2014....

And, sorry, this is generally true. I’ve had some really great experiences with drivers. Sound people and part of what makes Dublin Dublin!

Yeah, raised it at launch. Disproportionately hits lower income families. Even just the idea of having to keep an amount on deposit on the card can add to cash flow difficulties.

Also agree with this. Think just getting tech on board to accept debit cards would be more beneficial but progress is slow.

Dead right. I’ve discussed precisely this with them with regard to that route. And you’re right, no reason to hold back either. Some of the good bits can be implemented ASAP.

That is embarrassing and fair play to Erica but the one bit of BusConnects we should be implementing ASAP is 1. Debit cards can be used via contactless to board and 2. Vehicles should become cashless.

Always just someone who is accessible in society yet is held to professional standards and can be disbarred. Conspiracy theorists abound.

❤️ Important progress today as the Irish Government has stated it will ban the cruel practice of fur-farming in Ireland. The abusive treatment of greyhounds in the racing industry is another horrific example of animal cruelty - so this needs to be tackled as well.
