From October our new ticket machines will allow you to travel using your contactless card or device. 


travel contactless

Travel contactless is a quick and easy way to pay for your travel, and you'll always pay the  right fare.

Just tap on at the start of your journey, and tap off before you leave. Simple.

You'll only be charged a single journey for each trip, and with our day caps in place, your  spending will automatically be limited no matter how often you travel.


contactless payment

You can also use your contactless card or mobile devices i.e. Apple Pay & Google Pay to make contactless payment as an alternative to using cash to purchase any tickets up to the value of pound £30.
