Contactless Payment now available on Hallmark Buses
12 April 2018
New Ticket Machines equipped with the latest technology went live across all of our buses recently. The introduction of these new machines means that we can now offer passengers a range of new features including Contactless Payment.
It is now possible to purchase any ticket up to the value of £30 with a Contactless Payment bank card or via Android / Apple Pay on Hallmark Buses. As well as offering customers a more convenient way to pay, the new technology will speed up bus journey times because passengers will spend less time buying a ticket when they board.
The new ticket machines are also equipped with the latest in tracking and communications; live real time information feeds can now be reported back to depot traffic offices. This means we will be able to report delays much more accurately to customers and liaise easily with drivers to identify and rectify problems much more quickly.
These information feeds also mean that we are now able to pass on real time information feeds directly to passengers through the use of our new website bus tracker feature.
