Or, more precisely the Multi-pass will be coming to your town in 2015. This all-your-transportation-in-one-place is the latest in the trend towards end-user consolidation of services. From travel (Kayak) to banking (Coin), innovation revolves around aggregating multiple information streams into a sleek, clean, easy-to-use interface human-facing interface. In its best form, this is reduction of complication, while keeping complexity of the system intact.
The idea behind Multi-pass is to fold in one single ticket your train, metro, bus, car parking and possibly air passes (think the Fifth Element situation). Everything that has to do with moving a person from point A to point B now is in a single ticket. The secret is in e-ink screen, that displays barcodes for relevant transportation operators to scan and let you go through.
Let's just enjoy this idea for a moment before starting to think about all the challenges that it's bring for our privacy.
