Customers can now buy single day tickets as well as better value 7 day or 28 day advance tickets from the bus station information office. You can make as many journeys as you want on any participating services within the city during the 1 day/7 day/28 day period. Customers can then continue to top up additional saver tickets at the bus station or on participating Arriva, trentbarton, Notts and Derby, Kinch Bus or Your Bus.
At the start of each new day of travel, customers will simply need to place their Spectrum card on the bus ticket machine to activate that days travel. There is no need to touch off when you get off the bus. Every time you board a new bus service during the day, you will need to do the same thing.

Go to the bus station information office, where a member of staff will be able to issue you with a new card. Unfortunately any credit on your lost card can not be transferred.
