Why Smartcard?

  • Convenience – buy your ticket before you travel, with the ability to buy multiple days/journeys in one go, and with Pay-As-You-Go there is no need to carry cash
  • Discounts – get access to special discounted tickets when using the Pay-As-You-Go ePurse and when buying multi-journey tickets in advance
  • Cashless – top up your Pay-As-You-Go and use it to buy tickets on the bus
  • Robust – plastic cards are more durable than paper tickets
  • Security – if lost or stolen, registered cards can be blocked and then replaced
  • Protect your balance – if lost or stolen, your Pay-As-You-Go credit and tickets purchased online are protected and remaining credit will be transferred to your replacement card
  • Service improvements – better travel information  will help us plan future services
