One-day TravelMaster tickets go mobile in South Yorkshire
The ability to purchase tickets through mobile applications means the process of travelling on public transport in South Yorkshire is now easier and more convenient…
Passengers in South Yorkshire will soon be able to buy their one-day TravelMaster tickets through both the First mTickets app and the Stagecoach Bus app.
From 1 August 2018, all one-day TravelMaster tickets will be available through both apps; making it easier and more convenient for passengers to buy before they board. This means that one-day tickets can be bought in advance at home, at work or at the stop or station before a journey begins.
Passengers will simply buy their ticket on either app and then show their phone to the driver or conductor on-board once they’ve activated it. If they have a discounted GetAbout ticket they will also need to show their valid MegaTravel or 16-18 Travel Pass.
Matt Smallwood, General Manager of TravelMaster, said: “Our range of flexible one-day tickets already offers great value for transport users in the region and I’m pleased that we’re now able to offer them through the First and Stagecoach m-Ticket platforms.
“This is a great example of collaborative delivery that makes it even easier for our customers to access our range of one-day products at their own convenience whilst reducing the amount of time taken to issue TravelMaster products on-board which can contribute to delays.”
Passengers will be able to purchase the day versions of all TravelMaster multi-operator tickets which covers the CityBus & CityWide in Sheffield, BConnect in Barnsley, DonConnect in Doncaster, RConnect in Rotherham, SYConnect & SYConnect+ throughout South Yorkshire and the GetAbout & GetAbout+ tickets for under-18s.
