Yeomans Travel & Lugg Valley Travel - Swift Card

The cashless way to travel


From Monday 2nd November 2020 we will be rolling out a new way to pay on board our buses.

Using Swift will let you top up online, on the bus and soon you will be able to use Payzone facility.


Cards are free and can be registered online on the Swift website where you can top up or select an auto top up when the card balance goes below a selected limit.

The Swift card can hold a maximum of £50 at any one time and can be used to buy multiple tickets on one journey so if you have 2 people travelling, one card is all you need.  Your balance is shown at the bottom of your bus ticket too so you will always know how much you have left!


You can order your card online direct from Swift via their website: and then select Swift for you and then pay as you go.

This is the only part of the scheme we are operating at the moment.


You can set up an account online which will help safeguard your card or you can contact us at Yeomans Travel and we can either send you a blank card out or you can call in and collect one if this is easier, plus you can always top it up here as well!


This will mean you no longer have to hunt around for change in the mornings or the night before and there is no expiry date, so if you are not a regular user the money stays on your Swift card and can be used as and when required.


For more information on this scheme, please see either the Swift website or contact Yeomans Travel on 01432 356201.
