Scotrail – Smartcard

When you go to London, they have an Oyster card, which allows contactless swiping onto and off of all public transport. You can even simply use your contactless debit card.

In Scotland, Scotrail have a “smartcard” whit you can used in the same way as an Oyster card – except it only works on Scotrail trains, not on any of the other train operating companies on the network.

So although I have a fancy card – I have never used it as I use a CrossCountry train in the morning so I have to have an old-fashioned paper ticket 🙁


I’m building up a list of things that annoy me.
