tap, tap & Travel

The first time you travel with every new ticket, you'll need to place your card on the ticket reader to load the ticket onto your card.  

You’ll hear a ‘beep’ to indicate your ticket is has been loaded.  You'll then need to activate the ticket by simply lifting and then returning your card to the reader.

For every other journey on the ticket, simply place your Tripper card on the ticket machine once, listen for the beep, and then take a seat!
