    How to use

    Once you have a ticket loaded onto your smartcard you're ready to go.

    Simply scan your smartcard on the reader as you board the bus, or scan it on the new card readers held by tram conductors. The reader will check if the ticket is valid. On any trains or buses where there are no card readers, just show your smartcard and paper counterpart, where issued, to the driver or conductor as you would do with a paper ticket.

    If there are any problems with the card reader connecting with your smartcard, simply show it to the driver or conductor and they will tell you what to do next.

    To renew your ticket, simply take your smartcard to one of many Payzone shops in South Yorkshire: where you can pay by cash or debit/credit card*, or use one of the ticket machines in Interchanges.
    *Some stores do not accept card payments
