Smartcards, Oyster and PLUSBUS

Say goodbye to paper tickets: find out about using smartcards, payment cards and passes when you travel with Southern.

Save time and hassle

Say goodbye to the queues with our key smartcard, Oyster pay-as-you go and PLUSBUS combined bus and train tickets.

The Key Smartcard

The key, our smartcard, is a convenient way to buy your season ticket – and offers you a range of advantages. Buy online, touch in and out at stations, and register your details so you’ll never lose your season ticket again.

The Key Smartcard is smart, fast and secure

Quicker - just touch in at the gates

Easier - we'll add the ticket to your card

More secure - we’ll block any lost key

Free - no deposit to pay

Buying tickets

You can buy tickets online and collect them from the ticket machine before you travel. You can also buy them at the station from a ticket machine or staffed ticket office.
