The fitting of our new card readers is now complete across the fleet, with rigorous testing and compliance checking now underway.

In preparation for contactless, please speed up boarding times and avoid card clash by getting your travel cards out for the reader. More info.

When launched, adults will be able to use their contactless card for pay-as-you-go travel on all NCT buses, tapping their card or device as they board the bus and the system charging only for the journeys made during the day.

Example of travel in Nottingham in a day:

  • Tap on one bus - £2.30
  • Tap on second bus - £1.90 and £4.20 day cap reached
  • Tap on any more buses - No further deductions as you've reached the £4.20 day cap 

More information soon!
