Introducing smart travel with Rosso

All Ross Rover and GMsaver tickets valid for longer than one day are now only issued as a smart ticket, loaded onto a smartcard.

3, 7 & 28 day smart tickets are available to buy on-bus from your driver and tickets of longer duration are available to buy online through this website.

One day tickets, 2 person and Group tickets will continue to be available as paper tickets.

You don't necessarily need a Rosso smart card - you can load a smart ticket onto any ITSO smart card so if you already have a Get Me There, Walrus, Mcard, NoWstar or similar smart card, you can just use that to store your smart ticket.

Similarly, Get Me There smart tickets giving unlimited travel on all buses in Greater Manchester can be loaded onto a Rosso Smartcard.

Rosso smartcards also support the NoWstar e-purse valid for payment on most buses in the East Lancashire area.

You can order a smartcard here or alternatively, collect a free Get Me There card from any TfGM Travelshop.
