There is a convenient choice of payment options for buying your tickets which are quick and easy to use plus safe and secure. Online or via our App you can pay with PayPal, Mastercard and Visa credit card. You can also pay with Apple Pay or Google Pay on the TPExpress App.

Smart Card

Buy your weekly, monthly or annual season ticket online on your Smart card and upload it to your Smart card at the ticket gate or via a ticket machine. You can find out more information on Smart cards and register for a card here.

If you are travelling less for work, due to the current travel restrictions and would prefer to buy a single or return journey ticket, you can buy these via the TransPennine Express App and you don’t need your Smart card. Alternatively, you can buy a single or return journey ticket at the train station and upload them to your Smart card. 

You can still buy your tickets at our stations or have them posted to you but with our easy online options you only ever need to buy online! More options
