We've introduced Tap on, Tap off (TOTO) across our UniBws network. It's the easiest way to travel by bus. 

With TOTO, all you have to do is tap your card or payment device when you get on and tap the same card or device when you get off! We'll then calculate your fare and you'll never get charged more than a set amount each day, you'll even make savings if you travel more days in a week with us. Put simply, the more you travel across any 7 consecutive days the cheaper the days become!

Our UniBws network is made up of 4 routes that offer comprehensive links across the City and between campuses. You can also enjoy your journey knowing that you're doing your bit for the environment thanks to our fleet of modern, stylish and comfortable Euro 6 rated buses. 

We accept payments on VISA, Mastercard, Apple Pay and Google Pay. No more paper tickets, just remember to tap off when you leave the bus!

How much will I pay?

We cap how much you pay per day and per week - so, the more you travel between Monday and Sunday, the less that travel costs! So, if you travel with us all week you'll only pay 75p for unlimited travel on our uniBws network for the 7th day!

Using Tap On, Tap Off on non-UniBws services?

But please note, if you use Tap On, Tap Off on any of our regular services across South and West Wales, you will incur the standard adult Tap On, Tap Off fares.

How do I use TOTO?

When you board the bus, use your contactless card or device to 'Tap on' at the ticket machine next to the bus driver. Once you've reached your destination, 'Tap off' the bus using the reader attached to the pole on the left hand side as you exit the bus.

If using a device, you will need to ensure you trigger the payment mechanism for that device when you 'Tap on' and 'Tap off' i.e. ensure Apple Pay or Google Pay registers the transaction.

You can access your journey and payment information here >> 

All fares will be sent for payment processing at the end of each day. It will then depend on how quickly your bank processes the transactions - this is usually within 24 hours.

The system is currently only designed for solo adult tickets. 

You can continue to purchase Child, Young Persons (mytravelpass), Group and promotional fares - on bus or on the First Bus App.

If you do not tap off when alighting each bus, you will be charged the price of a day ticket to cover the cost of travel for that particular day - this charge will be applied the day after you travelled and forgot to tap off. So please remember to 'Tap off' each time you alight the bus!

No, one of the benefits of the system is it is paperless. If you need a receipt you can access your payment history here >> 

Yes, your payment history is linked to your card or device so make sure you use the same one each time you travel. 

If you have your payment method set up on your mobile through Apple Pay or Google Pay, make sure you stick to one method. If you switch to your card, it will be treated as a new payment method and you might not benefit from the price caps.

If you've made a purchase on board that was subsequently declined by your bank, unfortunately your card will be automatically blocked by our system. Once any outstanding amounts are settled by your bank, your card will be automatically unblocked. Until this happens, you'll need to pay with an alternative method. 

No, concessionary pass holders just need to 'Tap on' as normal.

You can 'Tap off' at the ticket machine by the driver and this will record your journey correctly.

Currently TOTO is not available on Cymru Clipper services. If you are planning to make a connecting journeys between a Cymru Clipper (X1,X2,X3) and any Bridgend services, then you should continue to purchase your ticket in advance - on bus or via the First Bus app.
