Tap & Cap is here!

2 weeks ago Tue 26th Jul 2022

Tap & Cap is the new, easy way to buy your travel. Simply tap when you get on board and tap again when you leave – no paper required!

You can pay by:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Apple Pay
  • Android Pay

The Tap & Cap system will automatically deduct the fare, capping it at a maximum of £5 a day or £20 a week, regardless of the number of trips you take.

It’s the best option for anyone buying an Adult Single or more than two journeys in any one day. Tap & Cap guarantee your payments will be capped at £5 per day.

If you travel more frequently, Tap & Cap will automatically cap your payments once you’ve travelled for 4 days out of 7. For example, if you catch the bus Monday-Friday, you’ll be charged the Dayrider price of £5 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but won’t be charged on Friday (or any of the journeys you make over the weekend).

It’ll also make it quicker for you and you don’t have to worry about keeping hold of a paper ticket.

How does it work?

Simply tap on at the driver’s ticket machine at the start of each journey and tap off at the end of each journey on the tap off reader just by the exit door. You’ll need to use the same payment method each time (your Visa/Mastercard payment card, or Apple Pay or Android Pay device).

You don’t need to tell the driver where you are going, and you don’t need a paper ticket. This all helps to make boarding our buses easier and faster.

That’s it! Welcome to the world of faster, easier travel with Tap & Cap!
