Ticket to ride

• While it was woefully overdue, we finally have a smartcard to use as an integrated ticket on public transport throughout Dublin and I hope it will be extended for use in other towns and cities without delay.

Unfortunately, despite its introduction, the smartcard has not improved loading time of buses. A lot could be learned from other cities in this regard.

The Oyster card in London is amongst the best systems I have encountered.
