A new Robin Hood pay as you go travelcard has been launched to help under 19s save on travel costs.
The Robin Hood Operators Group which comprises NET, the City Council and other travel operators in the Greater Nottingham area, launched the adult Robin Hood PAYG card, an epurse that uses a capping system to ensure best value for travellers, a little over a year ago. This has now been expanded to include a new Under 19 product.
Robin Hood PAYG allows unlimited trips on multiple operators for bus and tram. Since the launch close to 2 million journeys have been undertaken on PAYG cards with over 40,000 cards in circulation.
The introduction of the U19 PAYG extends the freedom to travel according to the needs of your day on multiple operators with the knowledge you are getting great value for those journeys to younger users.
The Under 19 card will be issued at travel centres as proof of age identification will be required and the card is not transferable, however it can be topped up at any of the 113 Robin Hood ticket vending machines in the scheme area.
The Under 18 season ticket is also being raised to U19 in line with the pay as you go introduction.
