To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-03905 by Humza Yousaf on 28 October 2016, what delays there have been to its plans to introduce single smart cards for travel on all public transport.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 23 February 2017
Through partnership working, the Scottish Government continues to work with transport operators across all modes in Scotland to deliver the vision of compatible smart ticketing. This programme is proceeding as planned.
The ScotRail network is already equipped for saltirecard season tickets, Super
off-peak tickets and anytime off-peak tickets across the complete network. Plans are in place to introduce a pilot for PlusBus tickets.
