I’m a child


If you travel often on buses or trams then you probably have a child’s season ticket. These aren’t available on Swift yet. So for now just carry on as you are.

Do you pay with cash on the bus or tram?

Try Pay As You Go. Just load the card with money and use it instead of cash. You can buy child singles, return and day tickets - just ask the driver when you board the bus or the conductor on the tram.


It makes things much easier, safer and cheaper:

Relax - no worrying about keeping money for the journey home or having the right change

Always get home - whoever pays can select Auto-Top-Up through a Swift account, so your card will never run out of credit

Savings - most operators offer additional discounts

Coming Soon One ultra-flexible card for everything

Soon you’ll be able to put Swift products on your concessionary card.

That means you can also cover travel that’s not free – like having Pay As You Go credit to cover travel before 9.30am on weekdays. Or if you travel regularly at that time, add a season ticket for pre-9.30am travel.
