Nottingham Community Transport’s trading arm CT4N, is excited to be introducing new Electronic Ticket Machines from Ticketer on the company’s routes that it operates commercially.

Passengers travelling on services 18, 22, 23, 33 and its network of shopper services, will soon be able to board the bus and pay for their travel contactless with either their debit or credit card.

CT4N have chosen Ticketer, not only to revolutionise the way passengers pay for their travel, but also to provide additional features to keep track of their vehicles, monitor schedule adherence and to allow the company to make changes to its timetables with all the details at its fingertips.

Welcoming the news of the company’s latest investment, Ian Combellack, Managing Director for CT4N said: “We were really impressed with the proposal presented to us by John and the team at Ticketer, as we look to develop our range of commercial services.  We’re very confident that Ticketer will be able to meet our current requirements and to assist with our exciting plans for the future”.

Ian added “CT4N recognises that passengers don’t always carry cash with them and therefore by offering contactless payments, with either their debit or credit card, we feel that this has a potential to attract new passengers to try our services”.

John Clarfelt, commenting on the new partnership with CT4N said: “We are delighted to be working with CT4N to enable passengers to pay for their travel by the most convenient method for them.  While the convenience of contactless will be welcomed by many, it is important to also enable customers to pay by cash or QR code using our ETMs if they prefer, making bus travel accessible to everyone.  We are also very excited to offer CT4N our additional functions of schedule adherence and management reports using the wealth of data collected by the ETMs.”
