Even more appealing...
now for use with bus and tram.
Introducing the Transport for Edinburgh app which comes as an update to the Lothian Buses app.
There's no need to search for the exact fare again. Instead, you can buy and load your phone with m-tickets for Lothian Buses and Edinburgh Trams services. Purchase tickets at a time convenient for you, your m-tickets can then be activated and used as you need them. Show your phone to the driver when you get on the bus or ticket services assistant on tram. Tickets are easy to buy and can be used straight away or saved for future trips.
To register for m-tickets you will require a valid debit or credit card or Barclays Pingit. Minimum spend is £10.
The updated app uses real-time information and can send push notifications so you’ll always know when your bus or tram is due. With real-time information, the app gives you quick access to live departure boards for every bus and tram stop in the city. Fast, responsive maps show you all stops and routes near you, as well as first and last departures, timetables and proximity alarms – we’ll send you a message when you’re approaching an unfamiliar bus or tram stop
If you’re looking for a fast, easy way to get around Edinburgh and the Lothians, the app can give you up to five quick, convenient ways to get there by bus and tram. You can then follow the directions on a large, clear map. Even better: we’ll send an alert to your phone when you’re close to your final stop.
The app changes depending on where you are and how you use it. You can add your favourite stops and places for use later on. Plus, the great ‘Take Me Home’ button gives you live directions for getting home, day or night. We’ll even send you messages if your favourite services are disrupted.
