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 UK’s Department for Transport. 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 in 2020. The ticket equipment was then installed on CT4N’s Link buses and on NET tram platforms. The final stage of the rollout involves one daily capped charge introduced across the three operators on both modes of transport.
Andrew Conroy of Tramlink Nottingham added that, “Nottingham already has a fantastic public transport system and adding a ticketing solution that allows customers to move from one form of transport to another without any penalty is a great addition.”
Contactless ticket validators can now be found across the NET tram network. © Page One Media/NCT
