@SteveGray87 Details about why we are exact fare are here:

We run a very intensive network of high frequency services throughout Nottingham and to speed up boarding times – which gets you to your destination quicker – we operate an exact fare system on our bus. We first introduced ‘exact fare’ in the early 1970s and several other major operators in the UK have the same fare collection mechanism. Transport for London run services where you cannot pay cash on the bus at all, to speed up boarding times. Speeding up boarding times means our costs are lower because we can run services with fewer buses and drivers than if we were to give change. We can easily load a 90 seat double decker in a couple of minutes whilst other operators who give change are still loading a single decker. If you travel regularly, our Easyrider smart cards remove the need to find the exact fare and are also a cheaper way to pay.
