Swift is a transport smartcard that fits the way you travel. It can store cash, season tickets and brand-new types of travel products. Right now it’s only for buses and trams, but soon it'll connect with trains too.
Swift is also really flexible: you can buy and top-up online, at one of 250 Payzone outlets or at one of eight Travel Centres. You can also collect online top-ups 24/7 using the Swift card Android app or one of 100 on-street Collectors.
The cheaper, cashless way to buy day tickets and single fares on the bus and tram, all over the West Midlands.
On the bus: hold your card flat on the card reader, tell the driver what ticket you'd like and wait for your ticket to finish printing.
On the tram: hand your card to the tram Conductor and tell them what ticket you'd like to buy.
Auto Top-Up – always get home
Link your Swift card to a credit or debit card and when your credit falls below £10, the card reader on the bus will automatically top it up with £20 - you can change the top-up amount to £30 or £40 in your online account
You never have to queue again – and it’s great for kids because you know they’ll never be stranded.
Most bus and Metro season tickets are now available on a Swift smartcard, making it quicker and easier to renew your season ticket. nnetwork Direct Debit tickets (exc. out of county add ons) are also now available on Swift.
If you pay by Direct Debit, your card will be updated automatically each month, so there's no need to wait for delivery of a paper ticket each month.
Swift Season tickets are personalised, so you need to get a Swift photocard:
Swift makes it easier to buy and renew your season ticket.
The first e-ticket on Swift is the National Express e-Daysaver card. This lets you buy 5, 10 or 15 day tickets on a special card for travel all over the West Midlands or just in Coventry.
Each ticket is valid for travel all day on National Express West Midlands and National Express Coventry buses in your chosen area. So not only can you travel whenever you want, it also works out cheaper than buying a day ticket from the driver. Other bus operators will be added soon. Buy from the Swift website.
