Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Ah, understood.

And per week. And it works for contactless (tap) payment cards (PayWave/PayPass/etc.) and phones (Apple Pay, Barclay bPay, Android Pay, ...) as well as for Oyster cards.

Fare capping is definitely something that would enable fearless use of the public transit system and may, all in all, result in higher revenue.

And also encourage use of fare cards.
