Re: Tap and Pay on Trams

No tickets are issued when you use your Visa or Mastercard.
Ticket checkers will have a special scanner that when it is held over your card will identify that you have paid your fare.
Very safe and secure-system used all over the world.

I haven't been on a tram in a while, do they still have the other options to pay available ?
You can also use your Metrocard.
