Key card technology on bus routes in Brighton and Hove
8:33am Tuesday 23rd July 2013 in News
KEY cards are set to be rolled out to all Brighton and Hove bus routes.
Brighton and Hove Bus Company introduced the technology for those getting on its services in 2011.
Bosses at the firm have now confirmed that it should soon be available on the Brighton and Hove City Council subsidised routes operated by Compass and The Big Lemon.
Passenger groups said that the technical issues had been resolved and only funding stands in the way.
Andrew Boag, of Brighton Area Bus watch, said: “In the longer term there is a possibility of a Brighton and Hove area smart card for all services, including Stagecoach buses.
“When asked, the main bus companies were open to the idea which is very encouraging.
“The price may be slightly higher than an existing Key Card or it may cover a smaller area. Brighton Area Buswatch will continue to press for this – if Oxford and Solent can do it, so can Brighton.”
