Points to remember:

  • You only need to be connected to the Internet when you buy your ticket, as the App is resident on your phone, you do not need a data connection on the bus.
  • Remember to activate your ticket in good time before your journey, so it’s ready to go. Your ticket will be in the form of a unique QR code, which needs to be scanned using the scanner.
  • Only activate the ticket just before you travel.
  • Gifting a ticket for your child protects your bank details and pairs your phone with your child’s if you want notifications and tracking info.
  • Please note: Each ticket holder will need their own smartphone to show the driver each time they board the bus.
