In 2017 we set a goal of securing smart ticketing across almost all of our rail network by 2018. As a result of our £80 million investment in smart ticketing nationally and the first phase of the £150m investment in Transport for the North’s multi-modal programme, passengers can now obtain a smart card or barcode ticket across almost all of the rail network.
