It's a clever card that stores your tickets, and it's reusable - so you can top it up to travel again and again. Simply place you smartcard on the ticket machine (next to the driver) when you get on the bus and off you go!
Buying tickets on the bus
You can buy Stagecoach and TravelMaster (CityBus, CityWide, RConnect and SYConnect) 1 day and 7 day tickets from your bus driver when you hand them your smartcard on the bus.
If you buy a 7 day Stagecoach or TravelMaster (CityBus, CityWide, RConnect and SYConnect) ticket you will be issued your ticket on a StagecoachSmart travel card, rather than a paper ticket.
Buying tickets online
You can top up your StagecoachSmart travel card with Stagecoach 7 day, 28 day and Xtra recurring monthly payment tickets on our Tickets page or buy using the Ticket Finder on this page. Once you've been issued with a StagecoachSmart card, you should hold on to it, and keep on using it to store your tickets for travel.
