MP on board as buses get SMART with tick­ets

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

HYN­D­BURN MP Gra­ham Jones gave his seal of ap­proval to the tech­no­log­i­cal revo­lu­tion that is trans­form­ing bus travel in Lan­cashire on the morn­ing of Mon­day, Novem­ber 6, when he trav­elled on well-known ser­vice 464 for a trip from Baxenden to Ac­cring­ton Bus Sta­tion us­ing one of the com­pany’s pop­u­lar Rosso SMART cards.

Com­ment­ing on the ex­pe­ri­ence, Gra­ham said “I found the trans­ac­tion ef­fi­cient and free from the has­sle of hav­ing to fum­ble for change, it is good to see bus com­pa­nies in­vest­ing in mod­ern tech­nol­ogy and I am sure that Rosso SMART will en­cour­age even more peo­ple to leave their car at home and use pub­lic trans­port.”

Phil Smith, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of rosso said “We were de­lighted that Gra­ham could join us this morn­ing, on one of our busiest ser­vices, to ex­pe­ri­ence at first hand what more than 2,000 Rosso SMART card users are do­ing ev­ery week, when they buy our range of weekly and monthly rover tick­ets on board our bus routes that serve East Lan­cashire and Greater Manch­ester.”
