Tickets Please


7:03am 20th August 2014

First Bus has launched a new app which will allow passengers travelling on its Dorset services to buy tickets on their smart phones.

The mTicketing app will be available to customers with an iPhone or Android phone, with the following tickets available:

Weymouth FirstWeek and FirstMonth*
Weymouth Plus FirstWeek and FirstMonth*
Dorset FirstWeek and FirstMonth*                            *Valid for 31 days

Matthew Callow, Commercial Manager of First Dorset, said: "This is good news for our customers. We are one of the first of the First divisions to give customers the opportunity of using their mobile phones as bus tickets. It is an innovative scheme, which I hope customers will welcome; and which will encourage new people to use our services and infrequent customers to get on board with us more often.

"Local bus users will be able to buy a weekly and monthly tickets to travel either around the Weymouth area or the whole of Dorset."

Dorset is one of the first areas to receive the new system. It will be rolled out across the company's other UK networks later in the year.
