The simplest way to pay for your travel.
Here at ScotRail, we’re committed to always putting you first and to keep innovating. That’s why we’re giving you a unique opportunity to take part in our Smart Plus Pilot Programme.
You could be one of the first people in Scotland to take advantage of our innovative new features.
If you already have a Smartcard, you can take advantage of Smart Plus without ordering a new one.
Order your free Smartcard
Apply today – it only takes a few minutes, and you’ll have your free Smartcard in five working days.
No more tickets
Smart Plus is a new way of paying for your travel, without having to buy a ticket. Simply use your Smartcard to tap in and tap out of each station.
Enjoy an easier top-up payment system
Instead of pre-loading your card with a specific ticket, you will be able to top it up online with any amount up to £500. You can also set your Smartcard to top-up automatically.
Always get the cheapest fare
Let Smart Plus do all the hard work for you. When you travel, Smart Plus automatically works out the best value fare for every journey you make. Travel between two stations and back again, and you’ll be charged for a return ticket, not two singles. Travel on the same route at least four days a week, and Smart Plus will automatically save you money by upgrading to a weekly Season Ticket.
Always be in control
Manage your payments and cards easily and securely via your My ScotRail account. You can even get alerts when you miss a tap so you can correct it online.
