A collaboration between bus and train companies and West Yorkshire Combined Authority has led to travel becoming smarter and tickets more readily available throughout the region.

MCard is the largest smartcard scheme of its kind outside of London and enables people to travel right across West Yorkshire’s bus and rail network using a single ticket.

New smartcard readers for all 700 Payzone stores within West Yorkshire were installed towards the end of 2013, with all terminals meeting with the strict requirements of the Integrated Transport Smartcard Organisation (ITSO) specification.
