‘Pay As You Go’ extends to Ebbw Vale line

Contactless tap in, tap out ‘Pay As You Go’ rail payment option has now been extended to the Ebbw Vale line (from Mon 18 March).

Making it faster, easier and cheaper to travel, Transport for Wales launched the pilot scheme in January on journeys between Cardiff Central, Newport and Pontyclun.

Following the success of the pilot, the scheme has now been extended to the Ebbw Vale line – making it a total of 11 stations taking part.

By the end of 2024 TfW aim to expand the scheme to all 95 stations across the South-East Wales Metro.

Alexia Course, Chief Commercial Officer for Trasport for Wales said: “We’re continuing to move forward with our ‘Pay As You Go’ payment option and I’m pleased that we’ve extended it to the Ebbw Vale line adding on an additional 8 stations.

“We’ll continue to expand throughout this year, making it easier for customers, improving their experience and attracting more people to use public transport.”
