Sargeants Brothers Managing Director Matt Evans said: “We are delighted to have contactless payments available across all of our fleet. This is great news for passengers who want to be able to turn up and pay quickly and easily. This is the latest upgrade in our fleet modernisation programme that now sees us operating one of the youngest fleets in Herefordshire.”
