One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
First UK Bus To Trial Mobile Ticketing
First UK Bus are going to trial letting passengers use their mobile phone as bus tickets in Aberdeen and Worcester. It isn’t available here yet but, if it’s successful, it could be by the end of the year.
If it is introduced here - bus customers will be able to use a new app to buy certain tickets using a secure payment system. Bus tickets will then live in a virtual wallet ready for the customer to show the driver.
Giles Fearnley, Managing Director of First UK Bus, said: “This is good news for our customers. I am confident that the app will be enthusiastically welcomed by many of our passengers and will strongly support our strategy to attract new customers. We will be rolling this app out across all our networks through 2014.”
The first rail freight service from the UK to China has arrived.
