Please note: Tap&Cap is also part of the Government £2 fare cap scheme.

Tap&Cap uses contactless payments to cap your travel charges so you will never pay more than the price of a day ticket or week ticket, no matter how many journeys you make. So it's an easy way to get great value. If you’re currently paying by cash or with contactless payment, moving to Tap&Cap could save you money on your bus travel. We accept payments on VISA, Mastercard, Apple Pay (Now with Express Mode) and Google Pay.

You Tap. We Cap. 

  • Choose which contactless card/device you want to pay with and tap it on the ticket machine as you board the bus.
  • There’s no need to ask the driver for a ticket.
  • Just make sure you tap the same device/card each time you travel.

It just takes 3 steps:

1. Board the bus

2. Tap your card on the reader

3. Wait for beep
