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.
