Suspending Contactless Payments for Get Me There Smartcards

7 months ago Fri 12th Feb 2021

With immediate effect, we are suspending contactless payments for the Get Me There 7 Day Anybus smartcard ticket on our buses.

Along with other bus operators in Greater Manchester, we take this action as a result of a dramatic increase in fraudulent transactions due to organised criminal activity. This means that we are temporarily withdrawing the contactless payment option on this ticket for on bus purchases.

You can still purchase this top up paying our driver in cash (£19.50).

You can also purchase these tickets from TfGM Travelshops (Leigh, Wigan and Altrincham Interchanges) or from any PayPoint location - to find your nearest location please visit

We will review this policy regularly and will reinstate the contactless payment option when the criminal activity has been resolved.
