keeping your mango in the green

It's easy and simple to keep your mango juicy with credit;

auto top-up

The fastest and easiest way is with auto-top up. You can enable auto top-up on your mango account when first create your account or on the top-up screen.

When your credit falls below a set amount, credit will automatically zapped to your account from your nominated debit or credit card. You can set both the mininum credit balance and the auto top-up amount.

Auto top-up can be cancelled at any time.

top-up online or in a trentbarton shop

If you don't want to set up auto top-up, you can top your mango up with credit through your online account using a debit or credit card. Or, you can top-up at any trentbarton shop using a debit or credit card or cash.

Our trentbarton shops are located at;

  • Victoria bus station Nottingham
  • Derby bus station
  • Lammas Road, Sutton

top-up on board

This is only available for adult mangos. You can top-up any amount over £10, and there is a 50p charge for this. The credit will appear on the mango instantly.

top-up at a tram stop

You can top-up at NET tram stops in Nottingham using cash or a debit or credit card.

 

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. 

 


juicy tips

stuff worth knowing...
  • Only adult mangos can be topped up on all of our buses
  • Holding your mango on the exit reader will display your remaining credit.
  • Top-up your mango in plenty of time, it usually takes 2 hours to clear.
  • Your balance online does not update until the mango has been used again. When you get a new mango, it will show a zero balance before you first use it.
  • The caps for our buses and the tram are entirely separate. Only bus journeys count towards your caps.
  • If you want to check your journey history (i.e. expenses claims) it is available online for 60 days. After this, it is not retrievable.
