Tickets on the app

To use your ticket - activate it before you need to travel - you only need to do this once for period tickets

When you get on the bus all you need to do is hold your phone, screen side up, under the ticket machine reader so it can read the QR code - wait for the beep/green light.

Fares on the app can be found here

Other information

If you get a new phone please let us know by emailing [email protected] and we will transfer any tickets across to your new phone.

Mobile tickets are accepted on services operated by Southdown PSV between certain points on certain routes. More info here.

If you have any problems or queries please email [email protected]

Please note: Ticket machines are programmed to accept a variety of cards and passes. We recommend storing credit and debit cards separate to smart cards, concessionary passes and mobile tickets to avoid accidently paying with the token. This happens very rarely

On the rare occasion that a credit or debit card is accidently scanned instead of a pass or mobile ticket, please contact customer services who will issue a full refund.
