Snapper Frequently asked questions Transferring buses

Transferring buses

Sometimes you’re going to take more than one bus to get where you’re going. You can use Snapper to transfer between buses to ensure you pay the best fare.

Within a 30 minute window on any Metlink bus, just tag on and off each bus with your Snapper card and the fare is calculated automatically for the total zones travelled. Some rules do apply: view the full list of transfer terms and conditions here.

How can I check it has worked?

When you tag on an additional bus within the transfer criteria you should see the words “Transfer Applied” appear on the Snapper reader. If you register your Snapper card online you will also be able to view transfers in your transaction history. This can also be done using the Android app.
