keyGo

keyGo is a product which can be added to a Southern Railway Key Smartcard and used for Pay As You Go journeys on most Southern, Gatwick Express, Thameslink and Great Northern train services.

It can also be used to pay for bus journeys operated by Brighton & Hove Buses or Metrobus which are wholly in the keyGo bus zones listed below. keyGo cannot be used for journeys which start or finish outside of a keyGo bus zone, or for journeys between two different zones.

keyGo Bus Prices

Each journey is charged at the single fare shown in the below table but you will not pay more than the day cap price for the zone if you make two or more journeys. If you have also made a train journey using keyGo which started or finished in the same zone, you will not pay more than the day Plusbus price for the zone.

Please remember that you cannot use keyGo to make journeys which start or finish outside of the zones listed above or to make journeys between two different zones. You can however use keyGo to make bus journeys within two or more zones and in this case bus travel using keyGo will not exceed £7.50 per day (£4.10 per day for children).
