Travelling with NCT just became even easier.
Nottingham City Transport (NCT) buses are now accepting adult pay as you go contactless payments following an official launch by NCT, Nottingham City Council and system provider INIT. With exact cash fares required on all NCT bus routes, contactless offers a cashless way for adults to travel. Travellers can simply tap their contactless bank card or mobile device on the card reader as they board each bus and then take their seat.
The new system automatically calculates the best fare for a customer based on their journeys each day, with customers travelling around Nottingham guaranteed never to pay more than the NCT all day ticket price. Overnight the system adds up all of the journeys a customer has made during the day (04:30-04:29) and deducts the money direct from a customer’s bank account. Unlike other systems, the new technology only requires one interaction per journey which should result in a better overall experience; especially with things like exiting the bus and waiting times.

Celebrating the launch, NCT Marketing and Communications Director, Nicola Tidy said, “The launch of adult pay as you go contactless payments on NCT buses offers our customers another cashless, convenient way to pay for their bus journeys. By simply tapping their contactless card or device on the bus each time they board, the contactless system does the hard work by adding up their journeys and charging customers based on their journeys during the day”.
