People aged under 19 can now get their own Robin Hood Card for cost effective and easy travel on multiple transport operators.
The Robin Hood Operators Group – Nottingham City Council and the public transport operators in the Greater Nottingham area – has launched the Under 19 Pay as You Go (PAYG) card, just over a year after the adult PAYG card was launched. It is an e-purse that uses a capping system to ensure best value for travellers.
Robin Hood PAYG allows unlimited trips on multiple operators for bus and tram. Since the launch, close to two million journeys have been undertaken on PAYG cards with over 40,000 cards in circulation and there has been a scheme turnover of over £1 million.
The introduction of the U19 PAYG card means that younger users can now benefit from the freedom to travel on multiple operators when they need to with the knowledge they are getting great value for those journeys.
The Under 19 card will be issued at travel centres with proof of age identification needed. The card can be topped up at any of the 113 Robin Hood ticket vending machines in the scheme area. The Under 18 season ticket is also being raised to U19 in line with the PAYG introduction.
