Pay as you go - High Wycombe

Pay as you go technology expanded to six Buckinghamshire stations

Customers at six Buckinghamshire stations can now use pay as you go with contactless when travelling by rail, operator Chiltern Railways has announced today (Monday 1 July).

Launching yesterday (Sunday 30 June), customers can now use a contactless card or device to pay as they go at the following six stations:  

  • Beaconsfield
  • Denham
  • Denham Golf Club
  • Gerrards Cross
  • High Wycombe
  • Seer Green & Jordans

As part of a major investment, customers at the six stations are now able to tap in and tap out using a contactless card or device, making rail travel easier and better on the Chiltern network.  

Chiltern Railways’ Commercial & Customer Strategy Director Andy Camp, members of the regional station team and colleagues behind the pay as you go with contactless project attended High Wycombe station this morning to see the new technology in action.  

Colleagues also met with morning commuters across the six stations, giving out information leaflets on the new technology.  

Richard Allan, Managing Director of Chiltern Railways, said:  

“The expansion of pay as you go with contactless to six additional Chiltern stations is a significant milestone.

“Pay as you go technology gives customers even more choice around how they pay for their travel.”

Using pay as you go with contactless is fast, flexible and convenient. All customers need to travel is their contactless card or device. Customers will be charged the best adult fare for their journey on the day and time of their travel.  

Customers using pay as you go with contactless should ensure they tap in at the start of their journey and tap out at the end. If they don't tap in and out, this will show as an incomplete journey, and they may be charged a maximum fare.  

More information on the expansion can be viewed here.
