Get Your Cards Out!

Separate cards for travel

NCT buses are fitted with new card readers, ready to accept contactless payments soon.

Whatever type of card you use to travel, be prepared by separating your contactless and travel cards to avoid card clash. 

The new readers accept existing Easyrider, Concessionary and Robin Hood smart cards, but to ensure they read the correct card and quickly too, please remember to:

  1. Take your card out of your wallet, purse or phone case holder
  2. Place your card flat on the reader and don’t move it until the card is read (don't move it up or down or away from the reader)
  3. Show your card to the driver and take a seat
