Bathurst buses to offer contactless payments
From 12 December 2022, passengers on select Buslines routes in Bathurst will be able to pay their fare by tapping their credit or debit card on a contactless card reader when boarding.
Initially 16 buses have been fitted with card reader technology in Bathurst, and soon this will be followed by select bus services in Dubbo in early 2023.
With the trial, we offer our regional customers a more convenient and efficient way to pay for their fare, without the need to handle cash. Customers will be able to simply tap to pay for their fare using a credit or debit card or linked device when they board the bus.
If successful, future trials could involve up to 300 buses across rural and regional areas.
