App-y days for bus pas­sen­gers

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Talking Politics -

McGill’s is claim­ing bus travel in Mon­k­lands“will get a lot eas­ier”after the firm launched a new app.

Un­veiled on Mon­day, cus­tomers can con­tinue to buy GoZone tick­ets, but now have“a whole range of new fea­tures to en­joy”.

These in­clude a live count­down to view when their bus will ar­rive, plan a jour­ney and find nearby stops fea­tures and the chance to view timeta­bles in a new, mo­bile-friendly for­mat.

The new free app will al­low cus­tomers to view ev­ery­thing they need in one place, tak­ing the best loved fea­tures from both of McGill’s other apps and merg­ing them into one, en­hanced app.

Ralph Roberts, McGill’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, said: “We are com­mit­ted to con­tin­u­ously ad­ding value to our ser­vices and the new free app will make trav­el­ling by bus even eas­ier.

“We’re very ex­cited about our real-time fea­ture; what a great en­hance­ment, know­ing ex­actly when your bus will be ar­riv­ing at the stop.

“M-tick­et­ing has been a con­ve­nient so­lu­tion for any­one us­ing the bus and we’re cer­tain that the new app will be an ever greater suc­cess.

“Cus­tomers can switch their tick­ets over by down­load­ing the free app and cre­at­ing a new ac­count with the same email ad­dress used for the cur­rent m-ticket app; just ver­ify the email link re­ceived.

“It’s a must have for all McGill’s cus­tomers, and for those con­sid­er­ing switch­ing to McGill’s great value ser­vices across our net­work.”

From 10pm tonight, cus­tomers must ac­cess all m-tick­ets via McGill’s new app.
