Topping up

Introducing three easy ways to top-up or renew.

Click and collect

Then all you need to do is collect. Use the Swift Card app, or over 100 on-street Swift Collectors to load your credit or ticket to your card.

Swift Card app

Collect a top-up from the comfort of your home with the Swift Card app, available to download for free from Google Play. 

The app works on most NFC enabled Android devices (running Ice Cream Sandwich V4.0.x or later). Simply open the app, place your Swift card to the back of the device and follow the on-screen instructions.

There is currently no Apple app, as Apple don't allow app developers to access the NFC of their devices. 

Swift Card App End User Licence Agreement.

Find your closest Swift Collector

There are over 100 Swift Collectors across the region. Some are at bus shelters and bus stations, and others are incorporated into the Birmingham City Centre way finding totems.

To use, simply hold your card to the reader, or rest it in the metal slot and follow the on-screen instructions. The Collector will read your card and load anything you've bought online. (Top-ups can take up to 15 minutes to become available for collection).
