"Busses will be quicker to board! But, not usable by visitors, tourists or casual users that might feel like taking the bus instead of using their car. Oh and big brother will no where everyone has been."
I have contactless passes for buses in 3 different cities, only one of which I live in and use buses regularly.
The passes in the other two (and my home city) were cheap and easy to obtain for casual use, and in no case was I asked for any personal details when getting the pass - give us some money, here's your pass, enjoy. Big brother knows where the passes go, they have no idea who is using the pass.
