MANGO moments

what is MANGO?

One simple card, rechargeable on-line, means you can say goodbye to using cash when you travel. MANGO saves time, money and hassle. It doesn't matter if you use the bus or tram often, or just every now and then, MANGO gives you a saving of at least 15% off the single cash fare for every journey you make. You can use MANGO on any trentbarton bus or on the NET tram in Nottingham.

(MANGO can not be used on pronto or skylink Derby-Leicester journeys)



how it works

MANGO uses the latest tech-wizardary to let you pay for your bus and tram travel with no fuss. Once you have your MANGO, simply create your online account to manage your card, from here you can deposit funds on to your MANGO. Once you're armed with your loaded MANGO, board the bus and 'touch on' with your card. When you leave the bus 'touch off' to record your trip. Your journey is automatically recorded and your discounted fare is decucted from your account. No more searching down the back of your sofa for change or breaking in to those crisp bank notes.

NEW! top-up your adult MANGO on board

We're always looking for ways to make MANGO smarter and easier to use, so after a successful trial, from Sunday 15 November 2015 adult MANGOs can be topped up on all of our buses!

It's really simple, when your credit is low simply tell the driver you wish to top-up and choose the amount you wish to top-up, which must be at least £10 and a mulitple of £5.

There will be a 50p charge added for all on bus top-ups. This will be automatically deducted from your top-up amount. Don't forget, topping your MANGO up online and auto top-up will still be free.

This feature is not available on pronto, skylink Derby or X38.
