CT4N, Nottingham Community Transport’s (NCT) trading arm, is introducing new ticket machines on services 18, 22, 23, 33 as well as its shopper services, which will enable people to pay for their travel contactless via debit or credit card.
Using Ticketer, NCT will also be able to keep track of its vehicles, monitor schedule adherence and enable changes to be made to timetables.
Welcoming the news of the company’s latest investment, Ian Combellack, Managing Director for CT4N said: “We were really impressed with the proposal presented to us by John and the team at Ticketer, as we look to develop our range of commercial services. We’re very confident that Ticketer will be able to meet our current requirements and to assist with our exciting plans for the future.”
Ian added: “CT4N recognises that passengers don’t always carry cash with them and therefore by offering contactless payments, with either their debit or credit card, we feel that this has a potential to attract new passengers to try our services.”
Ticketer CEO John Clarfelt, commenting on the new partnership with CT4N said: “While the convenience of contactless will be welcomed by many, it is important to also enable customers to pay by cash or QR code using our ETMs if they prefer, making bus travel accessible to everyone.
“We are also very excited to offer CT4N our additional functions of schedule adherence and management reports using the wealth of data collected by the ETMs.”
