How to use your iff app... 

Download the 'iff app' on your mobile device.  Search 'Cardiff Bus' in your app store. The app is available for Android and iOS devices and is free to download.



Add your payment method. 

Pay with your debit/credit card or through Barclays Pingit.
Your card details are stored securely, and it saves needing to have the right

change when you get on the bus.

Pick your ticket.

Choose from day or week tickets.

Add them to your basket then proceed to the secure payment.

You can also choose when your ticket starts - it can be for travel today, tomorrow, or next week.



Show the driver the ticket on your screen.

The ticket is displayed on your phone's screen - you'll need to show this to the driver every time you get on.

The time that's left before your ticket expires is also shown here.

If you're unable to show a valid ticket on your phone, e.g. if your battery is flat,
you will need to buy a ticket for that journey from the driver.

If your phone loses signal or has poor coverage, you can still activate and
use your ticket.
