Swift is the new, smart way to travel on Public Transport in the West Midlands.

What is Swift?

Swift takes travelling by public transport to the next level. It provides cashless travel across the Network West Midlands area with your travel product conveniently loaded onto one card.

The Swift card is easy to use and hassle-free. You select how, when or where you pay for your travel so whether you want to load it with Pay-As-You-Go credit or a season ticket you just keep topping up the same card.

How do I use it?

Just load your Swift card with your chosen travel product, place on the card reader when you get on the bus and wait for the beep and the green light. It’s as simple as that.

Where can I use it?
