Attention: UP Express one tap of presto card/fare card ok but tap off perhaps unnecessary on fixed fare routes.

Recently I experienced the use of UPExpress between Union Station and Airport. At present riders use tap on and tap off to pay the fare. In my opinion it is un-necessary because UPExpress has a fixed fare between Union Station and Airport. So just one tap should be sufficient to deduct the fare from the presto card (like municipalities do on local transit). Tap on and Tap off is required when variable fare is deducted depending on the distance travelled. In UPExpress this is not applicable, fare is fixed between the two points. Theses are my views on the system in use at present.
