Contactless on Callconnect – Fast and safe way to pay
Available on all Callconnect buses.
Just tap, take your seat and travel!
Paying contactless for your journey is fast, safe and secure just like card payments in a shop – simply present your card to be scanned by the bus’s ticket machine and the correct payment will be deducted from your account.
Contactless is a quick, secure and convenient way to pay and reduces contact for safer travel. Simply tap your card or contactless-enabled device onto the reader and wait for the beep.
