Conditions of Purchase

Please see conditions of purchase prior to buying your ticket.

Employer Accounts

SPT offers Employer Accounts for the purchase of annual ZoneCards. (Please note shorter validity ZoneCards are not eligible for this scheme).

This enables employers to purchase annual ZoneCards on behalf of their staff, to be repaid through agreed salary deductions (not salary sacrifice).

If you are interested in this, please speak to your employer in the first instance. To discuss Employer Accounts, your Employer should contact [email protected]

FAQs

ZoneCard is valid from Sunday to Saturday and can be renewed from the Thursday preceding the expiry date on your ticket.

If you do not have a current ZoneCard, you can buy one on the Saturday prior to its validity. Please note the ticket will not be valid for use until the following day.

The ZoneCard map shows the area covered. For example, Kilmarnock is in Zone K1 and Ayr is in Zone A1. Simply select the zones you need to travel through – the minimum number of zones you can buy is two – and you can enjoy unlimited travel with participating operators.

If you hold a valid ticket for either G1 or G2, you are also able to travel within the shaded city centre area – see shaded area of enlarged map of areas G1 and G2 – and on the Subway system. If you hold a valid ticket for either G1 or G2 and wish to travel in an outer Glasgow zone (G3 to G8) a minimum of three zones is required. If you possess three Glasgow zones, you will have the freedom to travel in all Glasgow zones (G1 to G8).

The ZoneCard is easy to use within the Subway. Simply place your ZoneCard against the orange panel on the ticket barrier. To make your ZoneCard ‘Smart’, bring your existing photo ID to any Subway ticket office for validation. Your ZoneCard must be revalidated at a ticket office every time it is renewed.

Please see conditions of purchase prior to buying your ticket.

We cannot give a refund or replacement for a lost or stolen ZoneCard, therefore insurance is recommended.

If you no longer require your ZoneCard, we can refund the remaining validity – please note we can only provide a refund for remaining whole weeks from the point that you contact us and provide the information described below. Refunds will be subject to an administration charge of £3.00.

Please note no refunds are given on weekly tickets.

Please also note the ZoneCard conditions of purchase.

Please do not post in your ticket for a refund, instead you should follow the steps below.

  1. Take a picture of your valid ZoneCard ticket in its current state where both parts are clearly visible (the upper photocard part, and the lower travel portion). We must be able to see the photo I.D. reference number in both parts of your ZoneCard ticket.
  2. Now take a picture of the travel portion of your ticket (the lower part) after it has been destroyed. You can cut your ticket into smaller pieces thus rendering it void.
  3. Please send these “before and after” pictures to the following email address: [email protected]
  4. Please include your Sort Code and Account number in your email as you will now receive your refund through a BACS transfer to your bank account. 

**Please double check that your bank account details are correct.**

Please also include your name and address and a short statement as to why you are requesting a refund.

For refunds relating to annual ZoneCard tickets, you may be asked to supply a copy of photo ID (such as a driving licence or passport) to verify your identity.

If your ticket was purchased as part of a salary sacrifice arrangement please let us know, as the refund must be paid back to your employer.

Tickets must have full weeks left in order to receive a refund. Please note the ZoneCard week is from Sunday to Saturday.
