In my area, Teesside, the two main bus companies use different ticket machines. Arriva seem to have the type that could read the QR / Aztec style tickets whereas Stagecoach you would have to show the driver the ticket. I heard a rumour a while ago from an ex bus driver colleague that Stagecoach were going to upgrade their machines again to the newer types.
Stagecoach are retrofitting barcode scanners to their buses, which appear to connect into existing ticket machines.

That makes more sense re the retrofitting, seeing as they haven't had the new machines for *that* long enough to warrant major investment in brand new machines. I generally use a weekly Megarider in the app, which shows a aztec barcode on the screen but just show the driver my screen at present.
