Out with the old...

421 days ago Tue 1st May 2018

Why a new mobile app?

We've taken into account a lot of feedback from our customers and colleagues whilst developing and improving our new app. We've made the menus more intuitive, improved the 'gifting' process so you can send tickets to your friends after they've been purchased, and much more coming soon!

As before, tickets can be bought in advance or on the day – even whilst waiting for the bus. The ticket types available are a selection of adult period passes and dayriders.

I have the old app, what do I have to do? 

The old app has been switched off and will no longer work, so please download the new app and start using it as soon as possible.

How do I get the app and how does it work? 

The new mobile app is available to download from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for Apple and Android devices. All you have to do is download the app, create an account, and buy the ticket that most suits you. Then, once you’re ready to use the ticket, just activate it and scan the barcode on your phone underneath our ticket machine’s barcode scanner.

If you had an account on our old app, you will need to create a new account on the new app - no data was transferred between apps.

For more information, please see our FAQ guide below or contact customer services on 01202 678100
