You can buy a range of tickets and travelcards online and store them on a smart card

Create a smart card account

Using a get me there account is perfect if you want to buy a day ticket or season ticket in advance using a computer, tablet or smartphone. You can buy a ticket up to 7 days in advance and your ticket will be available from the day after you buy it. Just use a smart reader at a tram stop to collect it.

Choice of smart cards

When you create your account, you can request a get me there card or link another compatible smart card you already have:

  • get me there card – request a new card or link an existing card to your account
  • igo card - link your card, or your child's card, to your account to buy child tram tickets
  • Our Pass – link your card to your account to buy discounted off-peak tram tickets or anytime adult tickets
  • concessionary pass – link a card to your account to add tram and train or buy tickets for when your pass isn't valid for travel
  • cycle hub card - link a card to your account, to buy tickets for travel by tram and bus

Cards are reusable, please keep hold of your card to use each week.

Once you have your get me there account

  • add or request extra smart cards at any time
  • buy the ticket or travelcard that is best for you
  • buy tickets for more than one smart card

Use your account for:

  • adult and child tram tickets
  • 16-18 off-peak 1-day and weekend tram travelcards
  • adult AnyBus & Tram combined tickets (You will need to touch-in using a smart reader at a tram stop, before using your smart card on a bus.)
  • paying to add tram and train to your concessionary pass

Once you have a valid ticket on your card:

  • touch-in at the smart reader before boarding a tram or at the ticket machine as you board a bus
  • touch-out at the smart reader when you finish your journey by tram
  • you don’t need to touch-out when travelling by bus

The smart readers on tram stops now accept contactless cards and devices for travel. Please move your smart card away from your payment cards, when you use a smart reader. For example, if you keep your card in a wallet or purse, remove it before you touch-in and touch-out. This will make sure you’re not charged on a contactless card you didn’t intend to use.
