Pay As You Go 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.

The Pay As You Go card is a multi-operator card that acts as an electronic purse – deducting travel as you use it. There’s no need for cash or tickets, the card does the hard work for you – capping at the best price for the day.
