Applying for a Pass
It is now even easier to buy your pass online! Our new website allows you to order your pass, pay for it and even set it to be automatically renewed! Meaning no more wasting time filling out forms and arranging payment each time your pass expires.
We know new systems can sometimes be a little confusing so we have added some further information to aid you in buying a pass.

Please follow these steps in order to buy your pass online:
- You will find all of our pass products under our 'Tickets’ section. Those products that are available to purchase online will have 'Add to Cart’ next to them. Simply find the product that you wish to purchase and click the 'Add to Cart’ button.
- The product will appear in your online shopping basket and will be shown towards the top of the page. From here you can change the number of months you want the pass valid for and also the start date of the pass by clicking the 'Edit’ button. Please note the start date automatically provided is the first available date the pass can be valid from. This takes into account process and delivery times. Once you are happy that the correct product has been selected click the 'Check Out’ button.
- If you haven’t already, you will then need to enter your unique pass number, which can be found on your current pass. After you have clicked 'Checkout’ you will be asked to enter your personal and payment details before confirming the order. All details are stored on a secure server.
If you get stuck along the way please contact our office on 0121 322 2222.
All of our passes are photocard passes so before we can get you setup on our online system we need you to apply for a pass the old fashioned way by completing our application form and supplying us with a photo.
Once this initial application has been complete you can visit our website and apply for any subsequent passes online. You will also have the ability to setup automatic renewals if you wish to. Further guidance can be found under the 'Current Pass Holders’ title.
