Wherever you need to get to, we’ve made things a whole lot easier with the introduction of contactless payments on Arriva buses in your local area. Quick and easy, it’s a great alternative to fumbling for change once you’re on the bus, letting you hop aboard, pay with a tap, and enjoy the rest of your journey.

What is contactless payment?

Contactless payments allow people to pay with a simple wave or tap of their chosen contactless device, whether it’s a debit/credit card or mobile phone, over a special ‘reader’ unit, without the need to enter a PIN. There’s no minimum spend, and can be used on any fare up to £30.

With one in three card payments being contactless, its popularity continues to grow as people look for quicker means of making a payment. And it’s not just cards offering contactless payments, the technology can also be found on:

  • Stickers
  • Key fobs
  • Wearable devices, such as watches and wristbands
  • Mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets


Check to see if your card or device has contactless capabilities and you’ll be able to board the bus and pay using this simple, handy method.
