Pay as you go cards

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

Both cards provide you with the convenience of integrated travel across Greater Nottingham without the need for cash.

Robin Hood PAYG 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.

Robin Hood PAYG can be used on:

  • Nottingham City Transport
  • trentbarton (except skylink express, red arrow, pronto and night buses)
  • Kinchbus
  • NET tram
  • Linkbuses / CT4N

PAYG cards are available for adults and under 19s. Adult cards can be purchased at any of our handy on-street ticket machines, while under 19 cards must be set up at the Victoria Centre Travel Centre.

All adult and under 19 PAYG cards can be topped up at the on-street machines. When topping up your card, follow the on-screen instructions and select the amount you would like to add to your card. This can be either £5, £10, £20 or £50. The maximum balance you can have on your card is £100.

Keep your card safe and check on your card balance

Register or login to your Robin Hood account. Registered Robin Hood users can view their card balance on their account. The balance shown is on the latest data received from the operators and can take up to 48 hours to update. For an exact balance you can place your card on any on-street Robin Hood ticket machine or, if you have downloaded the Robin Hood app onto an Android phone, click on the 'card check' link.
