The Key Smartcard offers an easier and faster way to buy, renew and use train tickets, compared to paper tickets. It’s a great way to minimise social contact.

It is now even quicker to load your tickets to your Smartcard with our app, allowing you to reduce the time spent at the station.

You can also enable the ability to Pay-As-You-Go by adding KeyGo during registration. If you are not travelling as frequently, KeyGo might be a suitable alternative to a season ticket.
