Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive (GMPTE) is trialling a contactless payment card on its transport network.
The trial with sQuidcard will take place across the Bolton area, and if successful may be extended to other parts of Greater Manchester.
The pre-paid transit smartcard service in Bolton will enable holders of the local council's leisure smartcard to make journeys on bus services operated by Arriva Manchester, using a stored value purse delivered through sQuidcard.
