Smart tickets and products

Be the boss of your commute – or make the most of your time off.

Wherever you’re heading, however regularly you travel, Smartcard is the best way to go.

Our new and improved mobile-friendly site and app makes buying ahead easier than ever. Want to travel in the next four hours? Head to the station booking office or ticket vending machine.

Smart Season Tickets

Smartcard is tough. Much tougher than paper. If your Smartcard does get lost or damaged, don’t worry — we’ll send you another. You can load weekly, monthly and annual Season Tickets for all our routes.

Our ticket vending machines can only load tickets worth up to £500. If your ticket costs more than that, get it online, on the app, or at the booking office.
