Tickets & Travel Cards
Get the right one for your journey
Our travel cards provide unlimited travel for a day, week or month and are available on Metro, Glider and Ulsterbus Town Services. They're the perfect way to save if you make more than 2 bus journeys a day and the more you travel, the more you save!
Your day/ weekly/ monthly travel card validity starts on the calendar day from the moment of first use - so for example - a day topup is valid for a calendar day only regardless what time of day the card is first used and expires just after midnight. A weekly travel card is valid for 7 consecutive days from the first day of use. A month's travel is valid for a calendar month from the date of first use, (for example, from 25th February to 24th March inclusive). With Metro and Glider day cards you can buy multiples days (1,5 or 10) as non consecutive days) .
Cards are also available from a Smartlink Agent, at the Metro Kiosk in Donegall Square West or atVisit Belfast Centre in Donegall Square North.

Once you start using your card, you can top up with more travel. When you top up your card, any additional days extend the validity of the card from that date e.g. if you have 3 days left on your card and you top up with a further 7 days, your Travel Card immediately becomes valid for 10 days from the date you top up, and not 3 days plus a further 7 days from the date of first use of newly purchased travel.
