By placing the Swift Card on the electronic reader, the Customer authorises West Midlands Combined Authority to debit the Customer’s Pay-As-You-Go credit by an amount equivalent to the monetary value of the journey or ticket. A ticket receipt may be produced for this transaction which may be required to be presented for any onward travel.
