Pulhams Smartcard

Information about our SmartCards

Due to the increased cost and administration of the sQuid SmartCard scheme, we will be withdrawing the Pulhams SmartCard on 31st December 2021. Passengers will still be able to purchase SmartCards and receive a 10% discount on standard fares where applicable, until this date. We will not be replenishing SmartCard stock once the current stock is depleted.

Customers should be aware that all SmartCards currently in circulation will no longer be valid for travel from 1st January 2022. Any remaining funds must be used before this date as excess credit will not be refunded. 

Easy. Safe. Cashless.

Our new Smartcard, is an E purse, here to make travelling a whole lot easier for you, our customers. No more scrambling for that loose change to pay your bus fare, and safer than carrying all that cash. Even better, any bus fare purchased using the new Smartcard will be discounted by 10%!*

It’s really easy to load money onto the Pulhams Smartcard; Either go online or you top up on bus with cash through one of our drivers, once you’ve loaded money onto the card, you’re all set and ready to go. Simply board one of our services as normal and buy whatever bus fare you want.*

Don’t forget!  Register your card to protect your balance should it be lost or stolen.

The small print:

Initial cost of Pulhams Smartcard is £1.
* Online top up payments on the Pulhams Smartcard take 48 hours to be processed. Smartcards are not valid when purchasing Weekly and 4-Weekly ticket types. The 10% discount does not apply to already discounted fares (i.e. NHS £1 fare from Arle Court P&R). On bus top ups with cash are effective immediately. An auto-top up is available when the balance on your card drops below a set limit.
