On Thursday 20 December, East Lothian based EastCoast Buses’ contactless payment option went live across all of its services.

The technology means that customers can now use VISA or MasterCard payment cards and also Apple Pay and Google Pay to pay for their travel.

Nigel Serafini, Commercial Director from Lothian, said: “This is the first time that contactless payment will be accepted for journeys on our services between Edinburgh and East Lothian.

“We are sure this will be a welcome addition to the county and will complement our existing range of value for money ticketing and payment choices for our customers, providing a seamless and convenient way to pay for your ticket.”
