Shiel buses launch smart e-purse

On 1 August 16, Shiel Buses, supported by Transport Scotland, introduced a smart e-purse which enables passengers to add e-money onto their Shiel Buses saltirecards either online or on the bus.

This means that passengers don’t need to worry about having cash when they board the bus they can just tap their Shiel Buses saltirecard at the electronic ticket machine and travel.  The fare is deducted from the e-money held on the saltirecard and is proving very popular and convenient with customers and also the bus operator.

This pilot is providing invaluable input to the development by Transport Scotland of the national e-purse scheme.
