Smart ticketing is the innovative way forward for many public transportation companies. This new technology is an extremely useful, efficient and cost effective tool to use rather than older forms of ticketing. Smart ticketing is the name given to the system where an entitlement to travel (or ticket) is stored electronically on a microchip rather than being printed on a paper ticket.
