National Rail and mental health
In my experience with low executive function, planning, buying and taking a National Rail trip is a pretty huge mental drain. (Let alone the over-inflated expense of fares themselves)
Overhauling the entire system, making it possible to just hop on a train or a bus with contactless nationwide is a pretty huge deal for me.

@xaphania @dzuk And that's even before split ticketing enters the picture.. if you compare, say, a day r/t from PAD to BTH as a single purchase, versus PAD-DID plus DID-BTH, the difference is astonishing, for exactly the same route, no need to even change trains (technically, provided the trains would've stopped there; sticking to the letter means every other PAD departure is fine, though it's extraordinarily unlikely even the most officious guard would mind).
Add in being able to use a Network Railcard for PAD-DID, and that turned the fare in 2013 from about £69 into about £36.
