New mobile ticketing

Have your say

Stagecoach bus passengers across South Yorkshire and Chesterfield can now instantly buy and download day tickets to their smartphone, using the latest technology.

The bus operator has introduced mobile ticketing, which means customers in Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham, Doncaster and Chesterfield can purchase dayrider tickets using PayPal or a debit or credit card through the Stagecoach app.

It provides an additional payment option, alongside existing StagecoachSmart cards and cash, and will make it even easier for customers to buy and use their bus tickets by combining mobile ticketing and journey planning information on one app.

The free Stagecoach app was introduced earlier this year for Apple and Android mobile phones, offering a number of journey planning tools including interactive maps and a smartphone GPS system.
