Merseylink is changing to a new, modern ticketing system. Passengers will still be able to use their existing Student Free Bus Passes, but will need to update their Fare Pay Smartcards to the new TransportMe Smartcard, to enjoy the full benefits which come with a TransportMe Smartcard.

These include:

  • Topping up your Smartcard through the TransportMe app, which is available free to download for Apple and Android users.
  • The TransportMe app allows passengers to track all Merseylink buses to within 10 seconds of their location. Passengers can set a stop as their favourite to receive notifications if the bus has been delayed.

Passengers will need a username and password to top up their Smartcard through the app. Users will be alerted with a notification when their balance becomes low. Safe, simple and secure way to top up your Smartcard, no more cash needed.
