How to use your Swift card

Bus

You can use your Swift card on most buses, but some depend on whether you’re using a season ticket or pay as you go. Check with the bus operator to make sure you can use your card on the bus you need to take.

When you get on the bus, tap your Swift card on the reader and show any other travel discount card you have to the driver. You might need to show your Swift card at any point in your journey if a conductor wants to check it.
