For regular travelers using more than one bus, tram or train operator.
The Robin Hood Season card allows unlimited travel on most buses, trams and trains within the Robin Hood Network (see below) - no matter who operates the service. So, if you want to travel on a bus and then switch to a train or tram, you can with Robin Hood!
Robin Hood Season is a smartcard for regular travellers, it comes in three types – Adult, Student and Under 19. Your Robin Hood card is activated for unlimited travel across the Robin Hood Network as soon as you buy it, and will continue to work every day for the period of time you chose, either 1, 3, 6 or 12 months.
To get your first Robin Hood Season card you will need to pop into the Victoria Bus Station Travel Centre. They will issue your first card and activate it ready for use.
Once you have your card, you can top it up at any of the 130 on-street ticket machines, or pop back into the travel centre again, whichever is more convenient. For more information, see www.robinhoodnetwork.co.uk
Pay As You Go
Simple, smart, good value option for less frequent travelers
The Robin Hood Card is a very useful smartcard with an electronic purse from which the cost of travel is automatically deducted as you travel around Nottingham.
You don’t have to decide in advance which ticket to purchase – the card works this out and gives you the best fare on the day for the trips you’ve made.
Smartcard readers on buses and trams give you a running total of your fare as you move around the City - you don’t need to wait for a statement of your account. The card is transferable.
You can purchase and top-up your card from any Robin Hood Network ticket machine. You can add amounts of £5, £10, £20 or £50 to your card. The maximum balance you can have on your card is £100.
You can also find out the current balance on your card on these machines at any time.
