French Train System Using RFID-enabled USB Drives

If any of our francophone readers happen to be in France soon, be sure to let us know how your trip was. More specifically, we want to know if French transit company SNCF has expanded it’s trial RFID program. Passengers will receive a USB drive with an RFID chip inside it. You can add money to the account via RFID or hand it to an attendant who will refill it over USB. SNCF wants to have all it’s customers using the system by 2010, so we’ll see what happens. Remember: security always plays a huge part.
