Bus operator tickets sold on machines available at interchanges will make it more convenient for passengers to save time and money, as they’ll be cheaper than on the bus.
From Tuesday 29 May passengers will be able to buy a range of First weekly and monthly bus tickets from vending machines located at seven bus interchanges around South Yorkshire, making them more accessible and helping customers to save money and time on their journey.
“We’re making it more convenient and offering more choice to customers buying these tickets. We’re always exploring how we can make using the bus an easier experience for passengers in South Yorkshire and this is just one step towards that”, says South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) Director of Customer Services Tim Taylor.
“Many First bus fares will be increasing from Sunday 27 May, but passengers can get a better deal when they buy their tickets at our machines or via the First app. They will be cheaper if you buy them before you get on the bus.”
Passengers will be able to upload their First tickets on their TravelMaster cards, 16-18 Travel Pass and MegaTravel cards at machines located at Arundel Gate Interchange, Barnsley Interchange, Doncaster Interchange, Hillsborough Interchange, Meadowhall Interchange, Rotherham Interchange, Forge Island Bus Station and Sheffield Interchange.
Payments can be made using cash, card or contactless and customers should choose First Bus tickets option where they’re available.
