Contactless is here!

Paying for the to​ll has just become easier for you as you can now pay by contactless. With contactless, there's no need to enter your PIN or search for coins. Just tap your contactless card on the reader screen, wait for confirmation and you're done - it's as easy as that!

Not sure if your card is contactless?

Check if your card has the contactless symbol on it and if it doesn't you can request a new contactless card from your bank or use chip and pin.
