    £360 million will be invested to radically reform and improve passengers’ experience of fares, ticketing, and retailing on the railways.

    • £360m invested to radically reform and overhaul rail passengers' experience of fares, ticketing and retailing
    • Contactless tap-in and tap-out ticketing to be at more than 700 stations across the country outside London and the South East with 400 stations across the North set to benefit
    • Investment marks first stage of plan to roll out convenient and modern digital ticketing across the whole rail network, improving thousands of daily commutes and simplifying journeys


    This will see contactless tap-in and tap-out ticketing at more than 700 stations across the country outside London and the South East, benefitting more than 400 stations across the North.

    Over the next three years, the Government will roll out contactless pay-as-you-go ticketing across the commuter networks of the Midlands and North – introducing London-style price caps and greater integration with local bus and tram networks.

    This is just the first stage of the Government’s commitment to roll out convenient and modern digital ticketing across the whole rail network, improving thousands of daily commutes, simplifying journeys and ensuring passengers are charged the best price.

    It will also help to create a rail network which will not only delivers the types of journeys that create jobs, supports businesses and unlocks housing opportunities, but will level up the Midlands and the North to become an economic powerbase to rival London and the South-East.

    Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said:

    “Passengers across the North and Midlands have waited far too long to see the same fast, easy and convenient ticketing as those in London. We’re determined to put that right.

    “Today’s investment is just the first phase of our efforts to overhaul our rail network, focused on improving journeys for passengers right across the country.”
    This comes ahead of the publication of the Integrated Rail Plan (IRP), and once the full programme is delivered, cities across the North of England will have access to a contactless ticketing scheme.

    The IRP will shortly set out how the government intends to transform rail across the North and Midlands, while delivering benefits for passengers far sooner than under previous plans.

    Merseyrail is a joke you want a ticket from Southport to wherever and by the time someone has got their three coffees a selection of chocolate bars and asked for information which is available outside on the timetable you have missed the train you were early for.

    It would be far better if they installed machines where you could purchase the cheapest tickets available and collect tickets bought online.
    Oh and we had trains that don't breakdown all the time.

    Why does the North always have to have someones castoffs?

    You could always use the ticket machine instead.
