Swift bus cards roll-out by the spring, Centro promises

Oyster-style bus cards will be rolled out to all operators by spring 2015, according to Centro, the transport authority for the West Midlands.

At present the Swift payment cards are only accepted by some bus companies in the region.

National Express West Midlands said it wanted to make sure the system was "as robust as possible" before adopting it.

Centro said it had made improvements to the system after a trial involving 2,000 customers.
