Greg launches contactless payments on Arriva buses in Tunbridge Wells

Greg was delighted to buy the very first ticket in Britain on an Arriva bus using contactless technology.

He said:

"Making bus travel more convenient for passengers is really important so it's great that Arriva is introducing contactless ticketing in its vehicles. With its brand new bus depot, state-of-the-art fleet and now contactless payments, Arriva is ensuring that Tunbridge Wells really is leading the way in modern bus travel."

The new payment system is available on all Arriva buses in West Kent, with the exception of some of the route 7's and 6's that come from the Maidstone depot.
