Subway tickets

Tickets are a fixed price and are not related to the distance you travel – it costs the same to travel between any two stations. The best value tickets – including season tickets – are available on a Smartcard.

Subway Smartcard

With a free registered Subway Smartcard you’ll have access to the widest range of Subway tickets and the best value travel, as well as the option to buy online.

Smartcard pricing

Smartcards are FREE if you register online. Anonymous Smartcards can be purchased in any Subway station for £3.

Pay As You Go (PAYG) credit offers great value and flexibility no matter how often you’re travelling. You can load any amount up to £50 of PAYG credit onto a Subway smartcard or National Entitlement Card, and when you travel the single or all day fare will be deducted. You’ll only be charged for the first two journeys you make in a day – after that every journey is free. PAYG credit never expires, making it the ideal choice for flexible travel patterns.

You can buy a 7-day or 28-day season ticket for any Subway smartcard or National Entitlement Card. For longer term season tickets you’ll need a registered Subway Smartcard.

Season ticket prices listed below are available at Subway stations – you can save even more by buying online.

Please note season tickets are valid on consecutive days.“
