Swift card

An easy and flexible way to travel

Swift Card

A Swift card is an easy and flexible way to travel around the West Midlands with a choice of tickets and ways to pay.

Load your bus pass subscription or day tickets onto the Swift card and simply place it on the scanner every time you get on the bus! Or load the card with credit to ‘Pay As You Go’ for journeys that way. Swift cards work for adult and child tickets.

What are the options?

  Swift card bus passes/travelcards

  • You don't get issued with a paper ticket, your smartcard is your ticket!
  • Cheaper than buying tickets daily
  • You can pay by a regular subscription or as a one off payment

Simply tap the Swift card on the scanner every time you board the bus!
