2018-08-13 10:06:06 UTC

2018-08-13 10:06:11 UTC  

some demand exact change

2018-08-13 10:06:19 UTC  

london and surrounding areas like reading are fine

2018-08-13 10:06:22 UTC  

all take card

2018-08-13 10:06:37 UTC  

Obviously you wouldn't be able to pay with bank card at a transport card sensor

2018-08-13 10:06:53 UTC  

you can in london

2018-08-13 10:06:57 UTC  

all buses take card

2018-08-13 10:07:01 UTC  

and only card

2018-08-13 10:07:04 UTC  

In one reader?

2018-08-13 10:07:06 UTC  


2018-08-13 10:07:14 UTC  

you can use either transport or credit/debit card

2018-08-13 10:07:24 UTC  

I saw the same thing in poortugal and paris too

2018-08-13 10:07:32 UTC  

That's nice, here they have separate reader for transportation card and separate for debit

2018-08-13 10:07:44 UTC  

it's pretty quick too

2018-08-13 10:07:50 UTC  

takes like a second for the green light

2018-08-13 10:07:56 UTC  

even with cc

2018-08-13 10:09:05 UTC  

surrounding areas are catching up

2018-08-13 10:09:14 UTC  

i think first bus got card now in surrey and berkshire

2018-08-13 11:47:02 UTC  

here in AU you can but not on buses

2018-08-13 11:58:01 UTC  

honestly, transport card was fine

2018-08-13 11:58:49 UTC  

taipei was the same but you could use the transport card to pay in a good number of stores just like a cc

2018-08-13 12:00:58 UTC  

contactless is more convinvent though

2018-08-13 12:01:13 UTC  

and big advantange in london as it lets you ignore the $$ london transport is

2018-08-13 12:01:53 UTC  

That sounds like a great way to milk people out of money actually

2018-08-13 12:02:21 UTC  

contactless is still best yea

2018-08-13 12:04:04 UTC

2018-08-13 12:04:09 UTC  


2018-08-13 12:04:10 UTC  

the readers on london buses are GOAT but for whatever reason, it takes ages to get them to work on Reading buses

2018-08-13 12:04:11 UTC  


2018-08-13 12:04:15 UTC
