You can purchase a Flexi Season ticket on the Northern website or mobile app, or you can purchase the Smartcard variant at any Northern ticket office. Flexi Season tickets will be available as either a Smartcard or Barcode ticket with Northern.
Smartcard - If you have a Smartcard, you can buy your Flexi Season ticket online and add it to your Smartcard when you get to the station by ‘touching in’ on the yellow reader on the gate, platform validator, or in some cases the self-service ticket machine. You can also collect it via the National Rail Smartcard app. Make sure you do this before you travel.
If you don’t have a Smartcard then please allow plenty of time to get one before you travel - they can take up to 5 days to arrive by post.
Barcode – You can buy a Flexi Season ticket as a Barcode ticket (where available) via the Northern website or app. This will either be delivered as a pdf document attached to an email, which can be stored in your phone wallet, or it will be delivered to your app and stored there.
