Towards the end of 2014, Muckle Media began working with ESP Group. ESP Group provides end-to-end solutions for smart schemes in the UK and beyond in mobility, education, healthcare and smart cities; issuing and supporting the operation of the likes of concessionary travel, commercial ticketing and staff and student card schemes.
At the start of the year, ESP Group won the contract to create and supply smartcards for rail passengers under a Department for Transport ticketing programme. The cards will work in a similar way to Oyster Cards and will be rolled out across southeast England with similar schemes then hoped to be adopted throughout the UK.
This news secured coverage in various media, especially in the Hull area where the smart cards will be developed. Articles were published in the likes of Hull Daily Mail and the news was broadcast on BBC Look North and BBC Radio Humberside.
ESP Group director Steve Cassidy also featured on BBC Radio Scotland to share his advice on preparing for travel in the recent bad weather and Muckle Media secured quotes from Steve in articles discussing winter weather travel.
