Cardiff Bus has become the latest operator to introduce contactless payment technology across its entire network.

Supplied by Ticketer, the system went live on Sunday (March 25). The move follows a successful trial across the municipal bus operator’s baycar, 27, 57 and 58 services in recent months.

Cardiff Bus Commercial Manager, Gareth Stevens, said: “It is hoped the new payment method will further help speed up boarding times and improve journey times. The contactless payment technology will complement existing payment methods, including mobile and online payment options via the iff smartcard portal, as well as its direct debit scheme, allowing greater flexibility.”
