Tap on Tap off is now available in Doncaster!

South Yorkshire has introduced tap on tap off, the easiest and most convenient way to pay for your travel!

No need to choose the ticket to buy upfront, simply tap on with the driver and tap off on the dedicated reader as you get off on every journey and we'll automatically work out the best fare on our buses. Available on all First buses in South Yorkshire.

The government £2 single fare cap will still apply on tap on tap off, but you'll only be able to travel on First buses. If you need to travel on other operator's buses, ask your driver for a Travel Master ticket.

Works with any valid debit or credit card, Google Pay & Apple Pay.

*Please, note the previous tap and cap message will no longer apply from 12th November, so you must now remember to tap your card on the reader when leaving the bus to avoid being overcharged.

How it works

  • When you tap on and tap off, we'll automatically calculate the single fare for your journey.
  • If you only make one trip, you'll pay the single fare - if you make several trips in one day the price, you'll pay will be capped at the day ticket price.
  • If you travel over the next 7 days, the price you'll pay will be capped at the weekly ticket price.
  • We'll work out where you've travelled, so you'll only be charged for travel in the boundary you have used.
