What is touch card?
It's a smartcard created by First West of England and designed to help you use the bus.
It works by storing your bus ticket on the card, replacing the paper tickets that you previously would have bought and used.
How does it work?
It’s really simple to use. You get on the bus and as the name of the card implies you simply touch it against the ticket machine.
Both you and the driver will then be able to see what is stored on the card, and assuming everything is valid, you will be able to take a seat for your journey.
