Period, TravelPass & NetworkPass tickets
How do they work?
TravelPass, TravelPassPlus and NetworkPass period passes can be loaded onto a travelcard or if you just want to use Swindon bus services you can buy period tickets via the Swindon Bus app. Once you have a ticket loaded onto your card just place the card on the ticket machine's reader on the bus. The ticket machine will read the card and check that it is valid for travel. The same with the app, buy your ticket on your phone and just scan the QR code on the ticket machine.
The best and fastest way to buy bus tickets is on the Swindon bus app - and some of these tickets are cheaper, but please note, if you need to use Stagecoach bus services as well you will need to buy your TravelPass on the travelcard.

How do I get a travelcard?
It's easy - apply online here, or visit our travel shop.
How do I renew my TravelPass?
On bus: You can load a 1 week or 4 week pass onto your travelcard on any of our buses within the area which the pass is valid - please pay by cash only. A sales receipt showing the value paid will be issued when the pass is loaded.
Travel Shop: You can top up your travelcard with a new TravelPass or TravelPassPlus at our Travel Shop in Fleming Way - pay by cash, debit card, credit card or contactless (maximum of £30).
Online: You can register your card online for topping up your pass. The new pass will normally be available to use within 24 hours by placing your travelcard on the ticket machine's reader on any of our buses.
You can load a second pass onto your travelcard while the first one is still current. The sales receipt will show the value paid and the second pass as 'stored'. This second pass will become active once the first card has expired and you then place the card on the ticket machine's reader.
What happens if I lose my travelcard?
If your travelcard is lost, stolen or damaged it can be 'hotlisted' overnight (Mondays to Saturdays) to prevent it being used by anyone else, so let us know as soon as possible. A replacement card can be issued at our Travel Shop for a fee of £5. This will be loaded with the number of complete days travel which remained on the card at the time it was disabled.
