Local Member of Parliament, Stephen McPartland, was pleased to launch contactless payments on Arriva buses for the Stevenage area.

Stephen McPartland MP said, “This will make a huge difference locally, as more and more people are using contactless payments instead of cash on a daily basis. I know many commuters like me, will welcome this development as there is a great interchange between the bus network and train station.”

Gavin Hunter, area managing director for Arriva, added, “The new technology will create a faster, easier and more convenient way to pay for our customers, which in turn will help to speed up boarding time and improve the customer experience as the UK moves even closer towards being a cashless society.

To enable contactless payments on board buses, Arriva has replaced the old ticket machines with Ticketer ETMs designed to give passengers a wide range of payment options. Contactless is available on a range of devices, including smartphones, tablets, and wearable technology, or simply using a credit or debit card, provided payments are under £30.
