When you order the Smartcard online we send it to your delivery address, you will then need to top the Smartcard up - either on the bus (weekly top-ups only), or at the Travel Centre for Weekly, Monthly or Annual top-ups.
If you top-up on the bus, please allow up to 24 hours before the credit is applied to your smartcard.
Please note - the Passport Plus (Student) Smartcard covers ZONES 1 & 2. If you don't need to travel outside the City of Newport to Cardiff (ZONE 2), then you only need a Passport (Student) Smartcard. Currently we cannot accept the Passport or Passport Plus Student Smartcards for use in ZONE 3 - please purchase a paper ticket on-board the bus (see our Travel Zones map page for fares).
You must be aged between 19 and 24 years of age and a Student, to hold a Passport Plus (Student) Smartcard.
Please Note: All Day Trips depart/return at Queensway, outside Newport Railway Station, and Cwmbran Bus Station.
