When you can buy your season ticket

7 day season tickets and Travelcards
On the start date - If the start date is a Monday (or Tuesday after a Bank Holiday), the season ticket may be issued from 06:00 hours on the previous Sunday.

Period season tickets, Travelcards, Annual and Gold Cards
If the start date is a Saturday, Sunday or Monday (or Tuesday after a Bank Holiday), the ticket may be issued from noon on the previous Friday.

If the start date is another day, the ticket may be issued after noon on the previous day.

If you are renewing your season ticket with no break in continuity the ticket may be issued anytime, up to seven days in advance.

What happens if I lose my Season Ticket?

If you lose your Season Ticket you should report it to the ticket office from which you bought it as soon as possible. If you think it may have been stolen, you should also report it to the police.

If we can’t recover your ticket, we will then consider your application for a duplicate. Duplicate tickets are only provided on Season Tickets of one month or more and we charge a small administration fee for processing them.

We can only provide one duplicate ticket in any 12-month period. However, in the following cases, you can apply for a second:

  • The original Season Ticket is returned to us within one month of you reporting the loss. Or
  • The first or second request for a duplicate was due to theft, robbery, fire or other exceptional circumstances. In this case, the event must have been reported to the police, the fire service or another appropriate body.

We are happy to refund the cost of any tickets bought on your route while waiting for your duplicate to be issued – just remember to keep hold of them.

We cannot issue more than two duplicate Season Tickets in any 12-month period.
