REGULAR rail travellers catching trains from Sheffield to London can now change from using paper tickets to a smart card.

The scheme allows monthly and annual East Midlands Trains season tickets to be stored electronically on a StagecoachSmart travel card.

Customers can obtain a smart card by calling 0845 8101010 or logging onto and registering for a blank card to be posted out to them.

Once a customer has received their StagecoachSmart travel card, it can be used again and again to store their future tickets which can be loaded on to it by phoning the customer service centre.

Cards can also be updated by using ticket machines at stations.
