Liverpool to be first city outside London to have entirely contactless buses

View original

Liverpool will reportedly be the first city region outside London to offer contactless payments on all bus services by August this year. This news follows the work of Liverpool City Region Combined Authority in supporting bus operators such as StageCoach and Arriva go contactless as part of a wider strategy to encourage smart ticketing and more flexible payment options across the region. The combined authority has also facilitated the introduction of contactless technology in the Mersey Tunnels and all staffed stations across its rail network.

With LEPs now responsible for significant amounts of local transport funding decisions, the Transport Knowledge Hub is a timely new tool for local decision makers. At the LEP Network, we know the huge value of giving LEPs a forum to share best practice and engage with other stakeholders, so we are delighted to be involved with a transport-specific project which supports spending decisions that make a genuine difference.
