Using Our Pass to travel:
- Touch-in at the smart reader before boarding a tram or at the ticket machine as you board a bus
- Touch-out at the smart reader when you finish your journey by tram
- You don’t need to touch-out when traveling by bus
The smart readers on tram stops now accept contactless cards and devices for travel. Please move your smart card away from your payment cards, when you use a smart reader. For example, if you keep your card in a wallet or purse, remove it before you touch-in and touch-out. This will make sure you’re not charged on a contactless card you didn’t intend to use.
