14th January - Contactless bus travel moves a step closer

Contactless bus travel moves a step closer

The big five operators – Stagecoach, First, Go-Head, National Express and Arriva – are working on an initiative to introduce EMV technology for contactless ticketing on all buses outside of London, where it’s already available. Passengers will have the option of cashless bus travel or capped, pay-as-you-go fares in all urban areas.

Dawn Badminton-Capps, Director Bus Users England said: “It’s great to see the big five operators working together to offer passengers something they really want: the ability to board a bus, to pay by card, and to have the cost of those journeys capped.”

Speaking at the launch, Transport Minister Andrew Jones said: “The smart ticketing revolution is helping to build a modern, affordable transport network that provides better journeys for everyone. By working together, industry, city regions and government have been able to ensure more and more people can use smart ticketing to get around. We are determined to continue driving progress so passengers get the quick and simple journeys that they want and deserve.”
