Transport for the North ("TfN") aims to digitalise the transport industry in the North. Almost all major transport providers in the North have committed to investment of some kind over the coming years. Customers are set to benefit from new smart-ticketing systems, which allow them to use their tickets electronically without having to queue up at ticket machines. Integrated tickets will also allow customers to use contactless payment technology for multi-modal travel, switching between trains, trams, buses and ferries with relative ease. It is hoped that this coordinated investment will ultimately boost economies across the North.
