'Appy Monday as new M-ticket app launches

26th November 14

It was an 'appy Monday for everyone at Harrogate bus station at the start of this week as our new M-Ticket app launched. With the help of the Stray FM team and supported throughout the day by delicious food and drink from Cafe M, the Cairn and Cedar Court Hotels, the Travellers Rest and Starbucks it was a chance for customers to find out about the app and give mobile tickets a try. The new app allows you to buy a bus ticket with your smartphone; you then just show the ticket on your phone to the driver to travel. There's no need to search for change, and faster boarding times mean you're on your way quicker too!.
