Ticket options & ways to pay

Swindon Bus app


How to Pay

All of our drivers accept contactless payment cards (up to the value of £30) and cash.

If you're only planning to take the occasional journey, we offer the ability to pay with cash and contactless. Most of our services offer single and return fares for those odd journeys. You can also pay for dayriders and other tickets on the bus too.

Our drivers carry cash to give change but not large amounts, so please try and keep to paying in coins and small notes. Alternatively, you can use your contactless debit or credit card, smart phone or smart watch using Apple Pay or Android Pay to pay for your fare.
