Aircoach has become the first bus operator in Ireland to offer contactless pay to its customers on board its vehicles.

Passengers who travel on its routes connecting Dublin Airport with Dublin City Centre, as well as its non-stop express services connecting Dublin Airport with both Cork and Belfast, can now use the service with mobile payments including Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay also accepted.

Commenting on the news, Aircoach Managing Director, Dervla McKay, said the new service is part of a wider programme of measures to assist customers on their journey and enhance their overall experience.

“We are delighted to become the first bus operator in Ireland to offer contactless payments to our customers on board our vehicles. Aircoach is always looking for ways to improve our customers’ travel experience and contactless together with the dual currency option it offers means they can now board our coaches with a simple tap of their card or device”, said Ms McKay.

The company, a subsidiary of First Group, also provides all car park and shuttle bus services at Dublin Airport. It expects to carry over two million passengers this year on services to and from Dublin City Centre and Dublin Airport.
