Buying tickets & topping up your iff card

  • Only weekly tickets can be added to your iff card by the driver on the bus (payable by cash only, not contactless) - remember to tell the driver which ticket you want to purchase before putting your card on the machine
  • You can top-up at one of the many PayPoint outlets across our network. To find out where your nearest PayPoint outlet is enter your postcode here
  • You can also set up a Direct Debit payment so that your iff card will never run-out, as long as you maintain the commitment. Click here for more information about the Direct Debit scheme
