Tap and Pay comes to Outer South

Busways employee shows off validator

Exciting news for our Adelaide customers who will soon be able to tap and pay as they board and use their credit or debit cards.

New smart validators are currently being installed on our buses in the Adelaide Metro Outer South area. The machines accept payments via metroCARD, Visa and Mastercard, including Visa and Mastercard-enabled smartphones and watches.

The validators are expected to be on all Busways buses by September 2023 and on all buses before the end of the year.

Paper tickets will still be accepted during the transition period. 

If you need to transfer to a different (bus or train) service, or are entitled to a concession fare, Adelaide Metro tap and pay may not be your best option.
