Swift Go Launch

New Swift Go flexible fares available on Diamond Services

17 June 2021

West Midlands

Diamond are pleased to announce that from Monday 21st June we will be accepting Swift Go products on our services in the West Midlands region.

Swift Go is a ‘Fare Capping’ payment scheme using the Swift Smart Card system. To travel you simply tap your Swift card (pre-loaded with the Swift Go product) on the reader when you board,  you can make as many journeys as you like and at the end of each day, The Swift Go fares engine will check what journeys you’ve made and work out the best price to charge you.

There will be fare caps for Single tickets, day tickets and week tickets for both Diamond journeys and multi-operator journeys - so if you only tap on a Diamond Bus you will only pay the Diamond Bus rate and if you travel on multiple operators you will be charged the nBus price.

Swift Go will launch on our services with Adult Single, Day and Week ticket rates for Diamond West Midlands, Sandwell & Dudley and a Walsall Low Fare Zone fare cap, Plus some nBus day cap options too. We're planning to launch more fare cap options on Swift Go soon.

You can find out more about Swift Go and apply for your Swift card at the Transport for West Midlands website here

For customers who live in our Worcestershire and other county regions, we will also be launching our own Diamond fare capping system in the near future, so that more customers can benefit from this new flexible ticketing technology. So watch this space for updates!
