This guide will show you how to load your Tshwane Bus Service card at Absa in 7 easy steps with pictures.
What will you need?
You will only need your Tshwane Bus Service card and don’t need to have an account with Absa. You will need enough money that falls within the following range and has no change at all the amount needs to be square.
So if I bought the connector R60 I would need to have R60 straight, not an R70- R100 because the machine does not return change. Let’s get started.
1. Insert your card in the ATM
Make sure that the ATM you are using allows cash deposits otherwise you’ll not have the option to load your card, follow by inserting your card in the ATM.
2. Choose your language
You have the option to then pick a language more understandable to you, pick one we will use English to make this tutorial inclusive of everyone.
3. Enter your pin
When you registered the card you had to pick a pin of your choice and enter that pin, you need to use that pin.
4. Acknowledge the terms and conditions
Acknowledge the Bank waiver and read through the conditions of using the service to load your card with points.
5. Pick Transit Load on the contactless transaction menu items
If all has gone well you shall see a screen with menu items you need to locate “Transit Load” whenever you want to load money on your card.
6. Pick your provider
Once you have selected transit load you should also select your provider in this case Tshwane Bus Service is our provider – So City Of Tshwane is what we will choose.
7. Choose a product category
8. Pick the amount you would like to deposit
Picking the amount you would like to deposit, it is important that the amount you deposit is exactly the amount you selected
9. Deposit, confirm the deposit and receive card and receipt
You can then put the money inside the notes deposit slot and then confirm your deposit amount and then the Absa bank will do the rest for you and return your card and receipt. All deposits reflect immediately and you can return to climbing your bus as usual.
