Monday was the last day of the Easter holidays so I went to North Greenwich with one of my sons. I managed to test more features of the contactless operation, including inadvertantly missing a touch during one of the journeys. I remain very happy with how it’s progressing so far.
When I signed up for this in November last year I was resigned to being told that my travel wasn’t enough to make a worthwhile contribution. After all, around half my journeys are by bus which aren’t included in the rail trial and thus wouldn’t count towards daily capping. Then in December the whole thing was put on hold thanks to the last minute fares revision changes. So when I received an email last week inviting me to join the trial I was very excited. My participants card arrived yesterday.
