If you use the BT shuttle bus you can now purchase a daily or weekly ticket direct from your mobile phone.
The Ipswich Central mobile bus ticket scheme has been extended to include the BT ‘192’ railway shuttle bus. Web-enabled mobile phones (not yet iPhone or smart phones) can be used to purchase your tickets on the day or in advance and shown to the driver when activated to save rummaging for loose change.
Fares are £2 for unlimited day travel on the BT shuttle bus only, or £10 for a week ticket (i.e. operational for 5 consecutive business days). Alternatively, if you purchase any other Ipswich bus Day Rover or Season ticket you can travel on the BT 192 service for free.
For those who regularly use the First route 66 there is also a discounted monthly ticket, saving £10 per month, if you sign up to direct debit payment – your new monthly ticket will be posted to you, saving a visit to the office each month. Mobile ticketing for all First buses is also available.
The new mobile ticket scheme will be launched on Thursday 15 July throughout the day on the shuttle bus and both these offers explained in the Hub at lunchtime with representatives from First and Ipswich buses.
