Introducing the new Rosso smartcard

Most of our range of Rover and GMsaver tickets are now available to buy on-bus as a smart ticket, loaded onto smartcards.

28 day tickets in paper format were phased out in November 2016 and from 19th February, 3 to 7 day tickets will also only be available as Smart tickets.

One day tickets, 2 person and Group tickets will continue to be available as paper tickets.

You can load Get Me There smart tickets onto a Rosso Smartcard or alternatively if you already have a My Get Me There card, you'll be able to add Rosso smart tickets to that instead. 

Any ITSO smartcard can be used and if you already have Rosso smartcard because you previously bought a smart ticket online, you can re-use that too.

Rosso smartcards also support the NoWstar e-purse valid for payment on most buses in the East Lancashire area.

You can order a smartcard here or alternatively, collect a free Get Me There card from any TfGM Travelshop.

We currently have the following Smart Tickets available to load onto your ITSO Smartcard:
