You can now make contactless payments. It is a fast, easy and secure way to pay for tickets that are under £30. You can currently buy the all-day return ticket using contactless, but we will soon be launching the Park and Ride app allowing you to purchase a range of tickets.
If you are making a contactless payment, simply board the bus and tap your card or device onto the reader.
Tickets are also available from machines near the bus stop at each car park.
