Cash and Contactless

Bus card payment with Salisbury RedsIf you only travel now and again, a single or return ticket is your best bet. All our buses accept contactless which is quick and easy. We accept cash too, but it does help if you have the right money, however our drivers are happy to give you change.

Contactless

All of our buses accept contactless payments. As long as your card, phone or watch supports contactless payments, you can use it on our buses. Our ticket machines do not support Chip & PIN payments and random spot checking (where your bank will make you perform a Chip & PIN payment every certain number of transactions) will not occur as bus travel is considered an essential service. The usual limit of £30 applies to contactless transactions, however, you can make multiple transactions using the same card.

Using contactless on-board is safe, secure and easy and carries the same level of protection as using Chip & PIN.
