At the start of the journey, the Travel card must be placed in front of the card reader at one of the turnstiles located in the station of origin. The same procedure is later repeated at the station where the journey ends. Passengers have 90 minutes in which to complete their journey. If this period is exceeded, a second journey will be deemed to have begun, and the corresponding fare will be charged to the Travel Card.
As on long-distance buses, up to 15 passengers may use the same Travel Card, providing no more than 3 minutes elapse between the purchases of the first and last ticket. This condition does not apply to the Large Family Travel Card, which is issued to a named individual and may not be used by anyone else.
Within the Consortium’s metropolitan fare zone system, Metro journeys are deemed to involve no fare crossings, as they do not take the passenger beyond the boundaries of Zone A. This means that Consortium Cards for use on the Metro may be configured for 0, 1, 2 or 3 crossings, with 0 crossings being the cheapest option for this type of journey. For further information, see the Fares section of our website.
