Lea Harrison, Edinburgh Trams Managing Director, said: “Initial trials of the technology at selected stops proved a real hit with customers, who no longer have to dig in their wallet or purse for loose change or stand around entering their PIN.

“We’re delighted that this quick and easy payment method is now available at all stops, and it’s really speeding up the process of buying a ticket for our customers before they board a tram.”

It was revealed last year that Lothian Buses was also trialling contactless payments on its Airlink service.
