If not, then that'll bewhy it's still currently needed. Your current season (that you transfer to card) will be tagged to your photocard, not your smartcard.

Renewal of season direct to smartcard will then obviate need for photocard, I guess
3  All across the Great Western territory / Fare's Fair / Re: Smartcards - can't transfer paper ticket on: January 17, 2019, 11:57:53 am
Is that being made *very* clear in the T&Cs for the smartcard?

Last one of those (non-Castle class) leaves in March, I'm hearing....something I'm sure GWR would have told the Herald if they'd actually done their job properly and called their press office to enquire.

That maybe why they haven't put the story up online

Those that already have them - is the photo built into/printed on the smartcard - or is it simply for their use?

Also - if on the card, does the 'carry your photocard' instruction still apply (has it been specifically disapplied by fresh T&Cs?)

It's difficult to know whether you are being funny or you yourself have made an error there!

They will have mobile card readers, like TfL do.

That's Grayling with a capital 'G'

ok, I think the point is made, no more from me.
9  All across the Great Western territory / The Wider Picture in the United Kingdom / Re: HS2 Downgrade on: January 15, 2019, 03:04:04 pm
ha ha! I see what you did there.

There were too many commas in the OPs post, but let's all ignore those too.
10  All across the Great Western territory / Fare's Fair / Re: Smartcards - can't transfer paper ticket on: January 15, 2019, 11:22:51 am
Also - yes, ITSO cards should work the TfL gates, I'm told - and other TOCs gates too, if your season is valid at that other TOC station.

HOWEVER, I am still concerned at obtaining out-boundary extension tickets. You still can't buy them online, so you have to fo to a ticket office - any ticket office!. What if that ticket office can't read your ITSO card - how do you prove you have a travelcard season?

And no, I don't want to buy (necessarily) a point-to-point ticket from whichever boundary station I pass through to my destination. I might return a different (but permitted) route!....be wary....

What a palaver!                

I thought Smart Cards were suppose to save time.

It will - but you are all trying to jump before the system can even walk. Hence the 'soft' launch - the vast majority of fares aren't available yet & there's just a trial going on.

Give it some months & this will get a full-scale launch. Order your smartcard in the meantime & be patient.

And we have started to come close to personal picking on each other ... let's desist from that temptation, shall we.

T'will always happen if you open a discussion board to full-on politics....hence my request to at least keep it on-topic (transport-related)

Apparently, this report is based on the recent All Parliamentary Rail Group meeting last week in the Copmmons. Does Hansard record these Group meetings?

I thought there weren't (m)any delayus on European railways (we keep being told they're always on-time!)

Old news, Guardian just catching up.
