Celebrations as Robin Hood travel smartcard hits £1 million sales mark


A pay-as-you-go travel smartcard used by commuters in Gedling borough has broken through the £1 million sales mark just a year after launch.

Over 20,000 Robin Hood pay-as-you-go smartcards are now in circulation which allow cheaper travel on Nottingham’s trains and trams.

The cards have proved popular across Gedling borough since machines were installed in Arnold, Carlton and Netherfield.

Councillor Nick McDonald, portfolio holder for Business, Growth and Transport at Nottingham City Council, said he was delighted by recent sales figures.

“Further planned improvements will allow the Robin Hood card to become an even more flexible and cost-effective way to travel.”

Nicola Tidy, marketing director at Nottingham City Transport said “Robin Hood smart cards are ideal for those travellers who need to interchange between modes of transport, the new pay as you go card offers flexibility of travel for the best price and many City residents are taking advantage of this new way to pay”
