Validation with bank card
On bus lines V3 and 46, a bank card reader has been installed so you can buy and validate single bus tickets only by holding the card close to the contactless reader.
The reader is located on the right as you board through the first door of the bus.
Card reading buys and validates a single ticket for a particular bus in a single step. If you are travelling with more people who also need a single ticket, you will need to hold the card close to the reader as many times as there are people.
The bank card reader emits a short sound on one note to indicate that the purchase and validation are correct. It also displays a message on the screen. If there has been any incident in the reading, the sound is on two notes.
If the payment card is not valid, you will need to use another one or purchase your single bus tickets via TMB App and validate it with the bus QR code. If the reading was incorrect, you will need to pass the card, mobile or watch back over the reader.
This purchase and validation system is completely digital. This means that the machine does not issue any physical tickets. If you have used this purchase and validation system and ticket inspectors board the bus, all you have to do is give them the last four digits of the card you used to pay. This provides proof that single tickets have actually been purchased on this bus with this card.
The bank card reader accepts Visa, Mastercard and American Express credit cards in any format (card, mobile or watch).
