Edwards Discount Card

edwards discount card

Edwards now offer the ability for cashless travel using our new discount card. The cards allows you to purchase bus travel up front reducing the need for you to have the right change and making travel less intrusive. There are 3 versions of the card

The Armidale Discount Card
The Uralla Discount Card
The Recharge Card

Both the Armidale and the Uralla Cards take a specific fare from the card. Providing you have credit on the card just swipe your card and go and sit. The system automatically deducts the set fare. The only time you need to interact with the driver is when you place more credit on you card. Both the Armidale and Uralla Discount card is subject to Terms and Conditions.

The recharge card is more like a credit card. When you get on the bus you tell the driver your destination and you want to pay with the recharge card, then the driver will tell you the fare and deduct that fare from the card along with a discount. Subject to the Terms and Conditions

So what it boils down to is - are your journeys mainly the same? If yes then the Armidale or Uralla card is for you. If you go to different places often then the recharge card is best for you.

To start you off...
It will cost $10 for any of the cards. Once you purchase the card you can put up to $200 but no less than $20 on the card. Over a whole year you will save time.
