The First Bus App is the smarter way to catch the bus. Simply download the First Bus App, and you’ll be able to buy and store tickets on your phone. You’ll never have to worry about losing your ticket or forgetting your change again. Just scan each mobile ticket when you hop on board, and you’re ready to go.
Running late? No problem! Using real-time information, the First Bus App also lets you know when your next bus is arriving, and available capacity; helping to prevent long waits at the bus stop.
To help you travel with confidence we have developed new functionality in our Mobile App. And with our latest update, version you can now track your bus live on a map so you know exactly where it is and when it will get to your stop. What’s more, each bus now displays in real time how many empty seats, and wheelchair spaces there are - to help you plan your journey.
Space Checker, from First Bus can help you plan ahead and travel with confidence. Space Checker allows you to see when your favourite bus stop and service is typically at its busiest and choose a quieter time to travel.
