What is Pay As You Go?

Pay As You Go MCard is an alternative to using cash on buses. You pre-load the card with Pay as You Go travel value, which can then be used to pay for any adult single, return or day tickets for travel across West Yorkshire.

PAYG can be used on the following operators' services:

  • Arriva
  • First in West Yorkshire
  • Transdev
  • Burnley & Pendle
  • Fourways
  • Harrogate Coach Travel (Connexions Buses)
  • Jacksons of Silsden

How do I use it?

To use it just tell the bus driver your destination and what type of ticket you require, then simply tap it on the bus card-reading machine.

The cost of the journey is automatically deducted from the card and the driver will give you a paper ticket, which should be retained as proof of purchase. The ticket will also show the Pay as You Go balance remaining on your card.
