Season Cards

There are three Robin Hood cards to choose from: Pay As You Go (PAYG) for occasional travellers, Flexible Days for flexible travellers, or Season for regular travellers.

Robin Hood Season is a multi-operator card that gives unlimited travel on any bus, tram or train within Greater Nottingham, offering maximum flexibility for your travel around the city.

Robin Hood Season can be used on:

  • Nottingham City Transport
  • trentbarton (except skylink express, red arrow or trentbarton night buses)
  • Kinchbus
  • NET tram
  • Linkbuses / CT4N
  • Stagecoach
  • East Midlands Railway
  • Cross Country Trains

Season cards are available for adults, under 19s and students for 1, 3, 6 and 12 months, with student cards available for the academic year.

All Season cards (with the exception of Direct Debit products) can be ordered online or purchased from the Travel Centre (now located in the Nottingham Tourism Centre, Smithy Row, behind the Left Hand Lion). Proofs will be required for Student and Under 19 cards.

Top up or check your balance at any of our handy on-street ticket machines, or at the Travel Centre, where you can also sign up for Direct Debit.

On Sunday 27th March 2022, there were some changes to the Robin Hood ticketing prices.

Regular travellers on Nottingham’s buses, trams and trains now benefit from cheaper monthly Robin Hood travel, as part of price changes introduced.

To encourage commuters back to public transport post COVID, the price of a monthly Adult Robin Hood pass has reduced by over 7% from £82 to £76 per month.

The Robin Hood Operators Group have also responded to the government’s Bus Back Better National Bus Strategy for England, by simplifying the way Robin Hood pricing is calculated, making it consistent across all ticket types. Average prices for each ticket type across the main Robin Hood Operators will be used as a base for the calculation, which ensures fairness for customers regardless of whether they buy a day, month or annual pass.

This new approach ensures the average price increase for Robin Hood tickets and passes remains below current rates of inflation, with the average rise just 4.7%. 

Season pricing, valid from 27th March 2022:

Price  Adult   Under 19   Student
1 Month   £76.00   £54.00   £62.00
