Traditional orange train tickets will soon be a thing of the past as companies look to change their ticketing arrangements for passengers around the country.
Arriva is among the first firms to introduce the new shop-style paper receipts instead of the bright card with the rounded corners.
Passengers on the Cardiff-Treherbert line are already receiving the tickets when they purchase them from an onboard inspector carrying the new handheld ticket machines.
An Arriva spokesman told the Mirror: The ticket itself will contain exactly the same information.
The big change will be it is no longer printed on the same orange card. What you get will be probably very similar to what you get at a restaurant, a printer paper receipt.
It will also contain a barcode that allows you to open the ticket barriers.
Scotrail and Great Western Railway are also believed to be rolling out new types of ticketing this year as companies aim to make travelling more flexible.
A Scotrail spokeswoman told the newspaper the firm was launching a new mobile ticketing service.
The new equipment will be lighter, faster and able to accept online and contactless payments. We plan to roll it out over the summer, she said.
I don't like the sound of that. I can't see what the point of spending all that money on modifying all the TVMS and barriers is? Card tickets are far more durable. So that means if I buy a Day Travelcard, by the end of the day it's going to be falling apart!
