We're using temporary timetables. We're still running most of our buses, just not as often, as we focus on getting key workers to work

Tap on and tap off with your contactless card, and we'll do the hard work by working out the cheapest fare for you!

How does it work?

The idea is simple - tap your card on the reader when you get on your bus, tap when you get off, and we'll work out the cheapest fare for you.

If it's cheapest for you to pay for a single, day or weekly ticket, we'll cap the price you pay at whatever is the cheapest for the trip you're making.

So if you travel on several of our buses in one day, you'll only pay for a day ticket, and if you travel for two or three days and the cost equals more than the price of a weekly ticket, you'll only pay for a weekly ticket. You won't be charged for the rest of the week, no matter how many buses you use. For example, if you're travelling around Keighley all day, the price is capped at £3.30 per day or £14 for the week – if you go further afield to Bradford, the price is capped at £4.50 per day (or £5 if you travel before 9.30am), or £18.50 for the week.

And it means that for the first time, you'll be able to buy our range of Gold tickets with contactless - if you travel more than a few days a week, we'll automatically cap your spend at £38, the price of a weekly Gold ticket.

Please note - at the moment, contactless capping isn't available for return tickets, so if you normally buy a return ticket, it might still be cheaper for you to do so.

How do I sign up?

It's so easy - and there's nothing you need to do, except tap on and tap off with your card the next time you travel!

First, you'll need to make sure that you've got a contactless bank or credit card - look for the contactless logo on your card. You can also take part if you've got a smartphone or watch with Apple Pay or Google Pay.

You can see a record of your travel history, and how much you've spent, by logging in to our tap on, tap off portal with your card details.
