Welcome to the Metrobus App

Some of the key features are: 

  • Tickets can be purchased – in advance or on the day.
  • View your bus on a map to see exactly where it is 
  • Plan your journey with our mobile-friendly journey planner 
  • View 'virtual departure boards' for all bus stops, including geo-location to show you your nearest boarding point 
  • Save multiple payment methods for quick purchasing in future - including PayPal 

New feature: You can now 'favourite' a bus stop so if you use one regularly it's much quicker and easier to get to the live departure boards.  Just tap the blue star on the home screen to add your stop.

How does the app work?

  • You pay for your mobile ticket (m-ticket) with a debit or credit card or PayPal, and it will be stored on your phone.
  • You can buy m-tickets 24/7 to travel immediately or in advance.
  • 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. 

What tickets are available on the app?

The tickets available on the app are our period Metrorider and Metrovoyager tickets - both Adult and Child tickets are available.

Period travel is available up to 4 weeks in duration. Group/Family travel is also available on the app
