For operational reasons like When the nfc readers aren’t working or they are looking for forged or stolen cards (yes I know they could just mark them as stolen in the DB) or other reasons I can’t be bothered to think of, a human needs to read the information printed on the card. That can’t be done if there is no card and only the nfc chip, hence the ticket is not valid, doesn’t matter that the chip is still electronically readable.
