Bus info at your fingertips thanks to new mobile app

The latest mobile technology is helping bus users to find essential service information when they’re out and about.

Thanks to a new version of the trent barton website that’s been specially adapted for viewing on mobile phones, they now have bus times and route maps at their fingertips.

The website also has details of the latest ticket offers and improved top up options for the one-in-four customers who pay their bus fares using a MANGO smart card.

Alex Hornby, trent barton Commercial Director, explained: “We’re always trying to make life easier for our customers and now they can find the nearest stop, or the time of the next bus, wherever they are and at whatever time of day.

“Our website already attracts more than 56,000 visitors per month and around half of them access it using a smartphone. This development will make it much easier to use when they’re on the go.”

The mobile-optimised website also includes a number of other useful features including a postcode search for easy route planning.

Alex added: “This latest innovation means you can carry the details of the entire trent barton network in your pocket. Make sure you add it to your favourites list!”

The website can be found by entering www.trentbarton.co.uk into the browser of your smartphone.
