If you’ve been travelling on our buses recently you’ll have noticed that some new blue Contactless validators have started to appear on board.
That’s because we’re in the process of trialling a new payment method with contactless debit and credit cards and we’d like you to help us trial the new system. In return for helping us by using your debit or credit card to pay for travel and giving us your feedback we’re offering a saving of at least 25% off single and multi-trip cash fares in any one day.
The trial is currently only open to customers paying for adult fares, not children or students. To take part in the trial you must first register your card with our contactless payment partner Multipass.
What is Contactless?
Contactless is a fast, easy and secure way to pay for bus travel around Guildford on our buses. It’s also smart, making sure you get the best fare each time you travel with a daily cap for you frequent travellers.
Once you’ve registered your card and you’ve received the verification code by text, just hop on any Safeguard bus and touch on and off with your card on our contactless validator.
You’ll be able to manage all of your details online, see your journey history, and what you’ve been charged – and the best of it is that the system will never let you spend more than you need to – automatically capping your spend at the best possible price.
What cards can I use?
At the moment, only Visa and Mastercard debit or credit cards can be used during the trial. We’re looking to add digital wallet products such as Apple pay in the near future. So watch this space!

I’m still confused by all this space-age wizardry!
