And in what year do you think we will get driverless cars?
Obviously you wouldn't get rid of the ticket staff before you had a ticket machine (or two) installed..
My point is that ticket machines already exist. Not every station has them yet, although even the really small ones are getting them, but there is no reason that they can't be placed in every station right now. The technology is there.
