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

Not only are Adult Travelpass tickets now available on our app, tickets purchased this way are valid for Stagecoach journeys.

Why should I switch from a Travelcard to the Swindon Bus app?

Simply put, our app makes your journey easier. These helpful functions are all available on the Swindon Bus app:

  • Journey planning
  • Live bus tracking
  • Live bus times
  • Purchasing tickets
  • Customisation to favourite stops & trips

Hold all tickets and timetables in the palm of your hand, putting you in total control of your journey!

Once you have made your purchase, you can choose when to activiate your ticket. Once activated you will have a ticket with a QR code that must be scanned on the drivers ticket machine.

Travelpass card

If you only use Stagecoach buses you MUST use your card for the first time on one of our buses so that travelcard is fully activated. All you need to do is tell the driver you need to activate your travelcard but you don't have to travel. You will need to place your travelcard on the ticket machine and wait for the driver to confirm its activated. If you don't do this, unfortunately your travelcard won't be accepted by Stagecoach.

How do I get a travelcard?

It's easy - apply online here.

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.

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.
