I Want a MultiPass

The MultiPass—named after a personal identification device seen in the sci-fi flick The Fifth Element—is a digital card that will allow users to pay for virtually any type of transportation throughout the UK.


Like a digital wallet for travelers, the MultiPass will allow users seamless access to travel by bus, rail, subway, tram, boat and even air. The all-in-one card, which is under development with government funding, is set to be piloted in 2014 in Glasgow and London. The MultiPass will likely use e-ink display for scanned barcodes and will automatically calculate the lowest possible fare.
