Delay new transport card, say consumer groups 2/25/2008

Monday 25 February 2008

There are so many serious problems surrounding the introduction of the new public transport smart card that its introduction should be delayed, the consumers association and public transport users group Rover say in Monday’s AD.

‘The problems are so serious that you really need to start all over again,’ spokesman Arno Bonte tells the paper. ‘That is the only way you can develop a good card for passengers.’

The ov-chipkaart smart card is supposed to replace all paper bus, train and tram tickets from next year.

The biggest problem is scanning equipment breakdowns, meaning passengers cannot ‘end’ their journey by swiping their card.
