Pay on board

For day tickets and single fare, the simplest way to buy your ticket is direct from the bus driver or tram Conductor.

If you're travelling on the bus or tram, Swift Pay As You Go is cheaper than paying with cash, and you'll never have to search for the right change again.

If you're travelling on the train from a staffed station, you must buy your ticket before you travel from the ticket office or ticket machine. 


You can buy and top-up Swift Pay As You Go cards, and top-up Swift season tickets at any of the 250 Payzone outlets located within the region.
