Things to note

Internet Connection

You don’t need an internet connection to view or scan your tickets, but you do need one for purchasing and activating tickets.  Make sure you stay logged in to MCard Mobile as you can’t sign in without an internet connection. For security purposes, if you have not been connected to the internet for over 5 days your ticket will not work until you refresh it by connecting to the internet.


If you buy an Under 19 or Under 26 or Student ticket, you may be asked by bus drivers to prove your entitlement to use that discounted ticket. There are a number of identity documents that will be accepted:

  • Anyone under 26 years old can show their Under 16, 16-18 or 19-25 or Student PhotoCard, a passport, driver’s licence or NUS card.
  • Full-time mature students must carry their 19-25 or Student Photocard to prove entitlement to use Under 26 or Student tickets.

Travelling with smaller operators 

When boarding smaller operator bus services, the on board ticket scanning machines may not be able to scan your ticket on the app, during these instances please show your app ticket to the driver.
