Supervisor wants smartcard accelerated mandatory for train




ACM supervisor wants the government accelerated the smartcard and enter completely abolishes the paper ticket. The paper card would be competitors of the NS at a disadvantage. The NS wants to make the smartcard middle of next year mandatory.

Smartcard The reason ACM supervisor of the paper ticket will off, is that it gives the NS more information than other carriers, writes the AD Monday in the printed newspaper. The NS should measure how many travelers with a paper card on NS tracks from other carriers traveling, and revenues are shared. The company may also use information about other processes in procurement, argues the ACM. How the NS gets an advantage, remains unclear.

By eliminating paper card and smartcard mandatory for all traveling in the train, expires this advantage for the NS and is more competitive as possible, so the advice is. It is still unclear whether the government and the NS will follow the advice. An anonymous director of an alternative carrier says in the AD that the NS and the Ministry of Infrastructure “two peas in a pod ‘are. The recommendation goes to the House, but the report is not there yet. The advice is not yet published.

At the moment can be a smartcard used for a trip by train, but it is not yet mandatory. The responsible Minister Mansveld will first examine whether people who have little by train and tourists do not become victims of mandating the smartcard.

The new chip has long been debated. The card allows you to keep track of who where traveling, which raises questions about the privacy. Moreover, the old smartcard, which is now being phased out, cracked years ago.
