TravelPass tickets give UNLIMITED travel on all Thamesdown and Stagecoach buses within the Swindon urban area (Inner and Outer zones) for periods of 1 Week, 4 Weeks or 13 Weeks.

Please see our map for Zone boundaries.
How Does It Work?
TravelPass tickets are loaded onto a smartcard. When you get on the bus just place the card on the ticket machine's bullseye. The ticket machine will read the card and check that it is valid for travel. A paper ticket will be issued with details of your journey and the expiry date of your TravelPass. You must retain this ticket in the normal way as proof of payment.
How Do I Renew My TravelPass?
You can top up your smartcard with a new TravelPass at any time at any PayPoint outlet in Swindon or at our Travel Shop in Fleming Way. You can also load a 1 Week TravelPass onto your smartcard on any Thamesdown bus within the area which the Travelpass is valid - exact fare please!
What happens If I Lose My Card?
Your card can be 'hotlisted' overnight (Mondays to Saturdays) to prevent it being used by anyone else, so let us know as soon as possible. A replacement card can be issued at our Travel Shop for a fee of £5. This will be loaded with the number of complete days travel which remained on the card at the time it was disabled.
How Do I Get One?
Please complete an Application Form so we can prepare your smartcard for you. You can have your smartcard sent to you by post, or you can collect it from our Travel Shop in Fleming Way. Once you have your smartcard you can load it with a TravelPass at our Travel Shop or at any PayPoint outlet in Swindon.You can also load a weekly TravelPass onto your smartcard on any Thamesdown bus bus within the area for which the TravelPass is valid.
Please note
To use a smartcard loaded with a TravelPass on a Stagecoach bus you will need to show your card and a ticket from a Thamesdown bus showing the card number and expiry date. If your first journey after buying or renewing your TravelPass is on a Stagecoach bus you will need to board a Thamesdown bus beforehand to obtain a ticket.

1 Week £14.50
4 Weeks £54.00
13 Weeks £153.00

Then, 1 Week TravelPasses can be bought on the bus - exact fare please! - as well as at our Travel Shop or PayPoint outlets in Swindon.
