pay as you go puffinpass

The smarter way to travel

The pay as you go (PAYG) puffinpass allows access discounted fares and buy cheap bus journeys in advance. You can use a Puffin Pass in three easy steps:

Step 1: get your puffinpass

You can purchase a PAYG puffinpass from the Town Terminus Shop. The pass initially costs £5 with all that money represented as credit on the pass.

Step 2: topping up your pass

Multiples of £5 can be added to the card at the Town Terminus Shop or on the buses. Later this year will see top ups possible online.

Step 3: away you go!

Simply rest your puffinpass onto the reader next to the driver, who will then give you a ticket. The ticket displays the amount of credit you have on your card so you can top up when it’s running low.

If you still have questions about puffinpass, please feel free to speak to our staff at at the Town Terminus Shop - they will be happy to show you how it works.

It can be helpful if you make a note of the number printed on your puffinpass as this may make it easier to return a lost card.

The small print

Please note that damaged cards, together with their journeys, can only be replaced if the pass is registered online. There is an admin charge for replaced cards. Cards should be handled carefully as we accept no liability for damage caused by misuse.
