iff card

What's iff?

Whether you travel regularly or just now and again, this smartcard allows you to go by bus without having to pay with change each time. Simply ‘load’ money on your card - either when you first get on the bus or, if more convenient, in our customer service centre on Sloper Road, in Cardiff Central Library or at PayPoint outlets - then choose whichever ticket option suits your needs. When it’s getting low just top it up the same way.

iff extras

Now your iff card gives you a little bit extra. We've teamed up with companies around Cardiff to give you offers and discounts when you show your iff card. To find out who's involved click here.

How does it work?

When you first get on the bus, tell the driver the type of ticket you want.  Place your card on the reader.  The driver will deduct the amount from your card and issue you a ticket. Keep this with you at all times whilst travelling. Take the card from the reader and find a seat.

If you want to top up your card or buy a weekly ticket on the bus, place your money in the vault and ask the driver what you'd like to put on your card. Iff cards can be topped up in multiples of £5 up to a maximum of £50.

4 week and annual tickets can only be bought at one of our customer services points. We currently have an office at our depot on Sloper Road and a hub in Cardiff Central Library.
