Keep passes separate to bank cards
Ticket machines are programmed to accept a variety of cards and passes. We recommend storing credit and debit cards separate to smart cards, concessionary passes and mobile tickets to avoid accidently paying with the token. This happens very rarely. On the rare occasion that a credit or debit card is accidently scanned instead of a pass or mobile ticket, please contact customer services who will issue a full refund.
