If you still wish to pay by cash, you can buy or top up a smartcard from our cash ticket machines in Interchanges or load travel onto your TravelMaster card at one of over 900 Payzone outlets,.
If you need to pay by cash on board, please make sure you have the exact fare to minimise contact with the driver.
