Xplore Dundee re-launches m-Ticket app
Xplore Dundee’s mobile ticketing app is being re-launched with a new look and extra discounts for its passengers.
The local operator’s smartphone app was launched earlier in 2018, offering discounted fares and a faster, paperless way of travelling by bus. The updated version, which launches from 2 July, features more green Xplore branding and colour-coded tickets, as well as a number of new products and discounts.
The Student Daysaver has now been introduced to the app, which will give students unlimited daily travel for £3. A Child Daysaver, also new to the app, has been reduced to £2.50 for the duration of the summer holidays. Families and friends on day trips will also benefit from a special Group Saver summer price which means up to five people can travel across the network all day for £5.
“The mTicket app has proved very popular since its release, with more and more of our customers choosing the ease and value for money of a mobile ticket over a paper ticket,” commented Christine McGlasson, Managing Director of Xplore Dundee.
Xplore Dundee is also partnering with Dundee City Council and Stagecoach to offer the ‘Holiday Hop’ ticket once again for the school holidays, allowing children to travel for just 20p with an adult holding a valid ticket.
The bus company is also part of the ABC multi-operator smart ticket project which is sponsoring the ‘Ticket to Ride’ statue in the Maggies Centre Penguin Parade, which runs from now until the end of August 2018.
