Transport for London (TfL), which is rolling out contactless card acceptance on London’s public transportation network and ran one of the world’s earliest NFC pilots in 2008, is “not convinced” about NFC, says Matthew Hudson, the statutory body’s head of business development for fares and ticketing.
“It’s taken ages. How much money is there to make with all these parties trying to get a piece of it?”, Hudson told a meeting of the Westminster eForum, Techworld reports. “We’ve just sat back and said we’re not interested. When you’ve worked it out come back to us and we’ll engage.”
