Holdall is a smart travel card offered free of charge by Norfolk County Council to encourage sustainable transport and offer customers new ways to pay on the bus. The smart card is based on the national open standard for smart ticketing, so it is not restricted to one operator. Any bus operator who chooses to participate can sell their tickets with the holdall, and everyone is invited. The holdall smartcard can also be used as your key to Norfolk Car Club.
There are two ways to use Holdall; either prepay for your tickets to be used on Park and Ride services around Norwich or prepay for your fusion bus tickets. Find out more about Fusion here. Alternatively, you can top up your card and use it as a pay as you go system. Currently, this can only be used with Park and Ride services as well as a couple of bus operators (sadly not servicing Wymondham at the moment). If this changes, we will keep you updated! Find out more information and request your free card on the Holdall website.
