Robin Hood PAYG Cards

To get your first Pay-as-you-go card just pop along to any of the on-street ticket machines near your bus stops, (for a map of where all the onstreet ticket machines are located, click here). Follow the on-screen instructions and your card will be ready and activated for travel. PAYG offers you discounted travel compared to a cash ticket, for example a single trip on a linkbus with PAYG is only £1.00, but using cash it is £1.20!
