If you don’t have a smartphone and therefore unable to use the MCard Mobile App, you can apply for a Under 19 PhotoCard which can be loaded with daily, weekly, or monthly tickets at bus station travel centres, ticket machines or on the android MCard app. Find out more and how to apply here.

Alternatively, tickets can be purchased on-board the bus on the day of use.
