How to buy and use a SmartZone ticket

If you only want to travel for a day, simply board a Stagecoach bus and ask for an Oxford day ticket. You can use an Oxford day ticket for travel across the SmartZone network.

You can buy your SmartZone ticket online and it will be loaded onto a smart card. Most Oxford SmartZone tickets become valid when you first use them.

Please allow at least 48 hours before trying to use your ticket. You’ll need to wait 72 hours on routes S3, S5, X30, 31 and 34.

For megarider and annual Oxford SmartZone tickets, you will be asked to select a start date when you buy your ticket.

If you don't have a StagecoachSmart card , we'll send you one with your first order – this will take up to five days. If you have selected a start date, your card will not be valid until that date, even if it arrives earlier.

How much it costs

Choose when and where you want to travel and we'll tell you how much it costs and where you can travel.
