Paying for your tickets on board has never been easier.

You can now use your contactless bank card, Apple Pay, and Google Pay to buy tickets on all Blackburn Bus Company buses!

Here's a few of your most common questions about contactless, answered. 

What is contactless?

Contactless is a quick, secure and easy way to pay without needing cash.

Who can pay with contactless?

You can use contactless if you have a bank or credit card with the contactless logo, or you have a phone which supports Apple Pay or Google Pay. Most new cards now include contactless as standard.

How does it work?

Simply ask your driver for your usual ticket, tap your contactless card or phone on the reader, take your ticket and take a seat!

What tickets can I buy with contactless?

You can buy any of our single, return, day, weekly and other tickets on board, up to the value of £30.
