We now have our very own smartcard, in conjuction with Transport Scotland and sQuid, it allows passengers to top up the card online and then use it to pay for travel on our buses, rather than using cash, much the same as the Oyster card works in London.

We will be adding more features in the coming weeks which will allow Multi-Journey tickets to be purchased online and sent directly to the card

Smartrip cards are free, to get one simply send an email with your name and address to or pop into our office in Haddington.

How do I add e-money to my smart card?

Before you can add money to your smart card you'll need to create a sQuid account and then register your unique 16 digit smart card number, which can be found on the SaltireCard side of your smart card, as shown above.

You can register for a sQuid account here:-

You can login to your account here:-

Once you've completed this process you'll then be able to add funds to your sQuid account online. Once you have topped up your sQuid smart card, you will be able to use the funds to travel on the bus.

Further information regarding the steps required to set-up and use your sQuid account can be viewed using our sQuid guidance document which can be viewed here:-
