grown ups - adult tickets across trentbartonland

adult mango

It doesn't matter if you use the bus every day or every now and then, mango gives you a saving of at least 10% off the single cash fare for every journey you make, and never more than the cost of a zigzag if you ride all day*. With this smart little card it works out that you'll never pay more than £30 over 7 days, or £95 over 28 days in a row.

mango tramgo - you can now use your mango for cashless tram travel, for £2 a ride or £1 short hop with a daily cap on the tram of £3.70. You can now buy and top-up your mango at the NET travel centre on King Street in Nottingham city centre.

Visit the tram website for more information.

*There is a daily maximum charge of £5.85 after 9am. Once you have reached this amount no more credit will be deducted from your mango no matter how much more you travel. If you start your travel for the day before 9am, the maximum charge within a 7 day period will be £30, and £95 within 28 days.

If you require a refund of any remaining credit on your mango, tap here
