Sportis prints on that annoying, flimsy, not-accepted-by-barriers type of ticket paper! They also don't fit in ticket wallets properly (which leads to damaged tickets, which leads to tight conductors charging you again), and to top it off they're so lightweight (compared to card-based tickets) they're easy to lose in high winds, or turblence. Trust me.TheSlash said:Sportis, Advantix, Aptis? They all print tickets, whats the difference?
From what I believe, they are of devices that print tickets.TheSlash said:Sportis, Advantix, Aptis? They all print tickets, whats the difference?
The computer system on the Avantix machine might be similar to Tribute, but as Jdan said, the "Avantix" is a PDA with a printer basically, and it is the printer that is an Avantix printer, it is just a portable form of Tribute. At-the Station, Tribute is the name for the computer system, whereas there are many different printing perhiperals, ie Virgin have Tribute with a "Newbury data Printer", whereas MML have Tribute with a "Swecoin" printer, which is a thicker font. All Tribute systems now print on thermal stock, which means mainly orange tickets from now on (unless you know which ticket to buy, and they still have the purple stock at Manchester Picc!- The reserves are quickly running out though! hock: )tubechallenger said:Don't SWT have mobile Tribute machines for the on-train staff?
