€55m for 'not so smart' travel card

I note that the project to develop a one-size-fits-all Smartcard for bus, train and Luas in Dublin is still not ready, despite being first promised in 2002 (Irish Independent, August 18).
The Integrated Ticketing Project has already cost us taxpayers €32m and the bill is expected to reach €55m by the time the project is finally delivered at the end of 2011.
Some 10 years on, €55m of cost and still no integration.
