We think you'll love the new features with the simpler, more intuitive design.

The new app gives you so much more, from easy ticket purchasing to improved real-time information and interactive maps to plan your journey. Plus, there are some fab new features, including a step counter and a way to track how many carbon emissions you’ve saved.

Tickets on the app

To use your ticket - activate it before you need to travel - you only need to do this once for period tickets

When you get on the bus all you need to do is hold your phone, screen side up, under the ticket machine reader so it can read the QR code - wait for the beep/green light.

Ticket prices can be found here or on the app

Other information

Except for the Family and Duo tickets, only one person per phone can travel, you cannot activate multiple tickets on one phone to allow several people to travel.

If you get a new phone please let us know by emailing mtickets@metrobus.co.uk and we will transfer any tickets across to your new phone.

Mobile tickets are accepted on services operated by Southdown PSV between certain points on certain routes. More info here.
