Quick question: do we expect TfL bus smartcard pads to read
regionally-issued ENCTS cards?

Cambs buses read my Cambs-issued one.


As far as I'm aware, the pads don't read non-London cards. You show it to
the driver, who issues a receipt.


I was in London last week and showed my Somerset card to several bus
drivers. They all simply nodded - no receipt. I believe I saw them
touch a button on their ticket device but can't be sure.


Yes, I'm sure they touch a button, wasn't sure about the receipt.
