how it works

mango uses the latest tech-wizardry to let you pay for your bus with no fuss. Once you're armed with your loaded mango, board the bus and 'touch on' with your mango.

When you leave the bus 'touch off' to record your trip. Your journey is automatically recorded and your discounted fare is deducted from your account.

Don't be a banana and forget to touch off, otherwise you'll be charged for the full journey.

You can top-up your mango online, at our travel shops and at our bay 5 information desk at Derby Bus Station.



use your mango on the tram

You can also use your mango on NET tram in Nottingham to make some sweet savings. Trips made on the tram won't count towards your bus caps.

Once you've done that you can buy a mango and transfer funds to it online.

We will post you your mango, a £3 fee is charged for the mango and delivery.


If you were already given a mango or have bought a pre-paid mango you can register it to your account and top it up online.

Once you have your mango and account set up you can track your journey history, check your balance and top it up online. You can even set up an auto top-up function, which automatically keeps your mango in credit when you drop below a set balance.
