A community bus operator with routes to towns and villages across Gedling borough has launched a new contactless payment service.
CT4N, which is part of Nottingham Community Transport, will now offer contactless payments on its services from this Monday (December 2).
Customers can purchase a range of tickets, including single trips, return and weekly tickets for both adults and under 19s, using their contactless payment card on the bus.
All major credit and debit cards are accepted in addition to Apple Pay and Google Pay.
CT4N managing director, Ian Combellack, said: “We are thrilled that, following a successful development and testing period, we can now launch our new ticket machines that accept contactless payments for our range of tickets.
“Customers have told us that this payment option will make using CT4N services even easier and will help us attract more people to use the bus.”
The contactless payment option will initially be available on borough CT4N Shopper services.
There are no changes to any tickets or fares and customers can still pay with cash. Season tickets will continue to be available to buy from tripese.co.uk.
Customers with Concession passes, Robin Hood season and pay-as-you-go cards will touch on their card as normal on the new ticket machines.
