A change to the way you use mango on the tram ...
We are changing the way mango works due to changes to our ticket machines, this means, from Sunday 29 March, you won't be able to use, buy or top-up your mango on NET tram.
If you use mango for our bus journeys only then there will be no change, if you use your mango for NET tram journeys, you can switch to a pay-as-you-go Robin Hood card to receive similar discounts.
We've put together some handy FAQs to help you out:
