Finding the right change, waiting for the bus and having to pay for your bus fares can all seem like a bit of a chore sometimes when taking the bus — not anymore!
Brought straight into the 21st century, travelling by bus has been made a whole lot easier with the addition of the bus app. Alongside Stagecoach, we explore how taking the bus has become a whole lot easier.
Going by bus for all of your travel needs
When planning a successful journey route, the app has everything you need – from your ticket to the bus timetable. You can plan your journey, access live bus information in real-time and purchase tickets through a Wi-Fi signal. What’s really handy is that if a bus is held up in traffic, you can see exactly where it is – minimising the amount of time you’ll spend at the bus stop.
Your bank details can be uploaded to your app too, so that you can purchase tickets at the touch of a button — they’re that easy to use. Not having to use change is great, and it keeps things tidy and paperless. Plus, it means you will never lose your ticket, as it’s stored on your phone. There’s no delay either, as your ticket will be uploaded to your device straight away. All you need to do is activate your ticket and show it to your driver when you get on board.
Travelling through the digital age
So that you can find the right bus to get easily, location services can be set up on your phone. When you’re able to locate local bus stops whilst establishing what route to take, why would you need anything else when it comes to taking the bus?
Journey planners also help you find an alternative route if your own bus is running late, or what busses are going the same way as yours if your bus has been cancelled. If you have a favourite route, or a bus that you take every day, then you can save these on the app too, which makes purchasing tickets in the future even easier!
If you’re a regular bus user, the benefits we’ve outlined here are sure to convince you that the bus app is the future of bus travel. By downloading a bus app for your Apple or Android device, you’ll be making more journeys at your own convenience than you ever have before.
