If you lose your ticket

If you lose your smart card, you should report your card as lost stolen or damaged either by logging into your account or by phoning our customer services on 0161 244 1000. They will arrange for a replacement card to be sent to your home address.

If you had a 28-day or annual ticket on your card with more than 7 days left before it expires, this will be made available for collection on your new card. Please note that you will have to collect this product from a Metrolink Smart reader. This applies even if the product is for bus.

Staff at our Information and Ticket offices can also request a replacement card for you but please note that, in order for your replacement card to be loaded with eligible replacement tickets and travelcards, it must be sent to your home address. A card issued to you in the shop will not have replacement products available to it.

You can request a refund (admin charge applies) providing there are at least 31 days left on the ticket. Please contact us on 0161 244 1000 to ask about getting your ticket refunded.
