Direct Debit

The best value tickets for bus, rail and Metro

The Direct Debit scheme offers adult and child monthly nbus, ntrain and nnetwork tickets. These tickets give fantastic savings, flexibility and convenience, and are always the cheapest way to pay for your travel if you are a regular bus, train or tram user.  

Buying your ticket with Direct Debit takes the hassle out of buying a new ticket each month, plus you can buy your first month's ticket during the application process so you can start saving sooner, while we set up your Direct Debit.

Once your Direct Debit is set up, your ticket will either be posted to you each month, or some tickets will be loaded onto a Swift smartcard.
