Bristol to get its own Oyster-style card by the end of next year
introduced from day one on the long-awaited MetroBuses which should be up and running by the end of next year. It will mean that passengers will be able to pre-pay for their card on the internet at home or on their iphone and then use it instead of cash when boarding one of the new hi-tech single deckers which will run on three routes that are now being built. Passengers will be able to buy the cards in advance at shops or other sites such as a park and ride terminal. They will be top up their cards online, some shops or any of the 90 stops on the MetroBus network.
