The Department of State Growth has announced that the free travel amnesty for everyone has been extended until the 31st May to give passengers still using cash more time to get a free Smartcard for contactless payment. Students catching school bus services will also be able to travel for free until 31st May. Reducing cash transactions is one of the many ways we can work together to stay safe on board.
Further enhancements to Derwent Valley Link’s TransportMe ticketing system will be made in the coming weeks to enable access to smartcards for those passengers that do not have a smartphone or access to a computer.
