Smart Tickets


The smarter way to travel

We’re giving Season Tickets a makeover and we're replacing old paper tickets with new plastic Smart cards. 

They will work the same as existing tickets, but are much more durable and keep your money safe. If your card is lost or stolen, you will be able to cancel it and we'll send you a new one.

Buy your Season Ticket online

Get yourself a Smart card and you’ll be able to buy your Season Ticket online, at a TransPennine Express ticket machine or renew at your local TransPennine Express station, with the new amount automatically added to the card.

Smart cards are now available for all journeys across our network.

Register for your Smart card here and we will send you a personalized card so you can enjoy the benefits of Smart travel.

Plus you can earn Nectar points on your season ticket, 50 points for a weekly Season Ticket, 200 points for a monthly Season Ticket and 2,500 points for an annual Season Ticket.
