We want you to get the best deal when you travel with us. We’ve got a handy fare finder so you can search for the price of your journey on each route.

You can buy a single trip from the driver, but the best way to save money is to get a Kinchkard. You can buy a 10-trip Kinchkard or a 28-day unlimited Kinchkard from your driver or online here.

travel contactless 

Just tap on at the start of your journey, and tap off before you leave. Simple. 

You'll be charged a single journey for each trip, and with our day & 28 day caps in place your fares will be limited, no matter how often you travel. You'll be able to check your journey history through our website.

contactless payments

You can also make contactless payments to purchase any tickets or Kinchkard up to the value of £30.

Just ask your friendly driver for your ticket, Kinchkard or top-up amount (up to £30) then hold your contactless card or device on to the contactless reader.

You can also travel contactless or use contactless payments with your mobile devices i.e. Apple Pay & Google Pay.

Kinchkard - Kinchkard options

Kinchkard options

Kinchkard is the quick and simple way to save you money on travel around the Kinchbus universe. Whether you use the bus every now and then or every day of the week, we'll have one to suit your needs. 

What are my options?

There are two main ways of topping up your Kinchkard with credit - by trips or by days. 

Trips allows you to load your Kinchkard with 10 trips at a time (up to a maximum of 20 trips). Each time you use your Kinchkard on the bus, we will take off one trip. If you aren't planning to use the bus for a while don't worry, your trips will still be waiting for you the next time you need them.

Days - this is where you can save the most. If you buy 28 days, you can use the bus as many times as you can before the card expires. As well as unlimited travel on your chosen route we'll also give you unlimited travel on any Kinchbus within Loughborough town. 

*Kinchkard student annuals are based on an academic year, running 1 September - 31 July.

You will be able to purchase student products from 15 August.
