More than 700 Payzone outlets are making travelling across West Yorkshire much easier for passengers.

Bus and train operators teamed up to launch ‘MCards’ – similar to Oyster cards used in London – which enable passengers to travel across the region’s bus and rail network using a single ticket.

The smartcard readers for all 700 Payzone stores in West Yorkshire were installed by the end of last year.

Chairman of West Yorkshire Ticketing Company Richard Soper said: “West Yorkshire is at the forefront of this activity and this is the biggest operational scheme to date outside of London.”
