Britain's contactless public transport revolution moves to Oxford

Jump to last reply

Oxford this week joined Britain's contactless public transport revolution.

London's public transport already accepts contactless credit cards (and ApplePay/AndroidPay) throughout virtually its entire system.

This week, the programme was rolled out to buses in Oxfordshire operated by Stagecoach. Except for its X5 to Cambridge, which still follows the local 800-year tradition of lagging behind the times.

So visitors can travel round London without tickets or special passes, go on to Oxford by the Oxford Tube bus, then get around on most buses in Oxford and the region without any more faffing around.

The technology is in the process of being adapted by the city's other bus operators, but isn't currently available on the Go-Ahead X90 bus from London or its Airline buses from Heathrow, Gatwick and Birmingham airports. It will be soon though. Some promotional offers will still need special tickets at present.

Oddly, Britain's weird policy of giving free bus travel to us oldies means if you're over 62 you don't need tickets anyway. So it's already odd travelling round cities (likes New York, Paris or Berlin) that still cling to the antiquated ritual of needing a special bit of card or plastic to get on a bus.
