Never have the right change? Problem solved!
The York by bus smartcard is completely cashless and offers a hassle-free way of travelling by bus. Buy and top-up your smartcard from our new smart kiosks with a range of ticket products to suit your travel needs, and save money on equivalent paper tickets.
Our easy-to-use smart kiosks accept credit and debit cards. See our quick step-by-step guide.
If you register your details online at MyTravelYork we'll send you a FREE card, ready for you to load at a kiosk with the product of your choice (normally £2).
Just tap and go.
Once you've loaded your York by bus card, all you need to do is place it on the ticket machine each time you board a bus. You can check your remaining card balance at any time at a smart kiosk.
Where to buy and top up your card:
50 bus routes. One card. No hassle.
