Resistance to use of smart cards
==Resistance to use of smart cards==
There are many reasons why riders would choose to use cash for fare payment rather than smart cards or other prepaid fare payment. Reasons include the perception that the initial cost of obtaining the card will not be worth the investment, the fear of losing a pre-paid card’s value, concerns about [[Privacy Issues|privacyissues]], and the convenience of cash for the occasional rider.<ref>Transit Cooperative Research Project.
