Train Fares & Travel Cards


All train and bus journeys can be paid for with contactless stored value smartcards. You can also pay with cash.

Distance Fares: How Are These Calculated?

Whether by bus or train, the distance fare scheme means you pay for the distance you travel in a single journey, no more, no less.
