Default Freedom Passes and South Central

Anyone know if they are ever going to bother sorting out the software
problem which prevents Freedom Pass holders from using gates at some South
Central stations including East Croydon and Victoria?

They did say to me it would be sorted out by the 24th April. But of course
it hasn't.

that was nearly ayear ago.

I'm talking about the new smart passes and the readers which don't work.
Bloody hell, at least in Northern Ireland when they introduced their new
smart pass system on public transport it worked properly. But maybe because
they tested it there. Where as here. nothing seems to be tested.

message by Robin May, but I would say that, wouldn't I?

Oh to have a single transport organisation!

Ok LUL could have done better on the tube itself but they have no control
over the Train Operators or Network Rail and their own gadgets.

That may be so, but the 'gadgets' in question are supplied by Cubic,
just like the TfL ones, so you would have thought they'd be compatible.
Unless, of course, the SouthCentral ones haven't had the firmware
patched to accept Oyster-based Freedom Passes or something...

Cya,

The gates at West Croydon were accepting Freedom Passes today.
