We encourage customers to switch from cash to mobile payments using mTickets on the First Bus App, as it makes boarding the bus quicker and easier. It’s perfect for buying your tickets in advance. Our research showed that boarding time and average journey times would improve if even just half of customers used mobile ticketing.
We accept contactless payments across all First bus operating companies. There's no need for cash, one tap of your contactless card, Apple Pay or Google Pay and you’re aboard and ready to go, no need to worry about having the right change.
You can make contactless payments for any ticket payment up to £45, using any contactless card displaying the Visa or Mastercard logo.
