Pop blue card including a £10 balance
Pop blue is the smart new way for young people aged 18 and under to pay for public transport in North East England.
Simply top up your Pop blue card and use it to pay for your journeys on Tyne and Wear Metro, buses and the Shields Ferry as you make them. You can top up your card at popcard.org.uk, Nexus TravelShops and at Metro station ticket machines.
You must be aged 18 or under to apply for a Pop blue card.
If you're 16 or 17, we need you to confirm that you have permission from your parent/guardian to apply for a card.
Parents or guardians should apply for cards for young people aged 15 or under - check here to see if Pop blue is the right card for your child if they're 15 or under. Please make sure that you enter the date of birth and name (in the delivery information) of the young person though - not the parent/guardian. And if you're buying more than one card, please buy them in separate transactions.
Your Pop blue card is free, and will arrive with a balance of £10 on it.
Postage is free and your Pop blue card will be dispatched within 48 hours.
