Bus doors should always open outwards. It’s just logic: inwards-opening doors take up space that could otherwise be filled by passengers.
It’s a bad scenario when QR codes are being scanned by a human. It’s a good one a human approaches a machine that scans his or her QR code.
But the latter is just a cheaper option instead of NFC.
