New ticket machines and tickets have arrived on the 51 bus serving Crosspool.

The new machines issue new-style of paper ticket and are also expected to be part of First’s plans to offer contactless payment for passengers.

This means that you’ll be able to wave a pre-pay card, or debit/credit card in front of the machine to pay your fare. The new system will also have the capability to accept payment via mobile phone.

It doesn’t look like the new contactless payment systems aren’t yet active on the 51 route, so in the meantime you’ll still receive a paper ticket when paying by cash.
