Rover is our most popular ticket type and allows unlimited* travel on Rosso.
As well as regular priced Rover tickets for adults, we also offer discounted Rover tickets for young people under 20 years old.
Most Rover tickets are now available as Smart Tickets, to be loaded onto Smartcards. From 19th February, only one day tickets will be available in paper format. From that date you will need a smart card to continue to use 3, or 7 day tickets. Getting a smart card is easy, click here for more information.
Tickets for longer durations can be bought online here on this website.
If you travel on Rosso only within Greater Manchester, a GMsaver ticket may be better value - click here fore information
