Can you pay for a the Mount Floyen Funicular by card?

Hi There I am taking a group on a day trip around Bergen and wonder if you can pay for a trip on the Mount Floyen Funicular by visa card.

We are arriving by cruise ship. I have a coach and guide booked to take us on a trip from 9 - 4pm but leaving us at the funicular.

Can you tell me how long a trip on it will take and is it far to the harbour from there.

Should I keep the coach waiting for us or is it easy to get back to the harbour by foot.

Thanks Joan

Yes, you can pay by card - as long as the ticket office is open. (And in summer it's open from 08.30 until 23, I think)

The ride only takes around 6 minutes one way. (But you'll want to stay up on mount Fløyen for a while, to enjoy the views and take photos of the troll etc...:op )

It isn't far from the harbour - the lower Fløybane station is situated less than a 5-minute walk from Bryggen. From Fløybanen to where most cruise ships dock, I'd say less than a 15-minute walk.
