Nottingham launches tap and go across public transport

Tap and go ticketing has been rolled out across Nottingham

Nottingham has rolled out tap and go ticketing across three of the city’s major transport operators.

Public transport users can now pay a single daily capped charge across Nottingham City Transport (NCT), Nottingham Express Trams (NET) and the Linkbus network operated by CT4N.

The new system uses INIT’s contactless technology and is the latest development is the final stage of the Nottingham Contactless scheme which was conceived in partnership with Nottingham City Council and the three transport operators utilising funding from the Department for Transport (DfT).

The phased introduction of INIT’s contactless technology across the city’s fleet of buses and trams started with INIT’s introduction of contactless payments on NCT buses at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.

The ticket equipment was then installed on CT4N’s Link buses and on NET tram platforms, but this final stage of the rollout sees just one daily capped charge introduced across the three operators on both modes of transport.

Passengers can tap their contactless payment card, smart phone or smart watch on the bus or tram validator before every journey and still only pay one, capped daily fare for the day’s journeys.

INIT’s intelligent fare management system then aggregates their journeys throughout the day and charges a multi-operator day ticket, guaranteeing they pay the best price for their travel.

Anthony Carver-Smith, head of marketing at NCT, said: “With over 2.5 million contactless transactions on NCT buses to date, contactless is proving a popular and convenient way to pay for bus travel in Nottingham.

“The extension of adult contactless capping across NCT, NET trams and Link buses is an excellent addition to the Nottingham Contactless scheme, providing even greater convenience and flexibility for customers.”
