An app developed by Ticketer in collaboration with Bus Vannin is set to transform the way people get around the Island by bus.
Zip Trip provides a range of features designed to make it easier for customers to get to their destinations, including detailed route information, live departure times and how to find your nearest bus stop.
Jason Moorhouse MHK, Member with responsibility for Public Transport, said:
‘Zip Trip is a great tool for our passengers and caters for a range of customer needs. Tourists, for example, who may not know exactly where they are, will be able to use the free bus wifi and track themselves on the map. And commuters who have had a long day at work and fancy a little nap on the way home can set an alert to make sure they don’t sleep past their stop.’
Ian Longworth, Director of Transport Services, said:
‘We have had an exciting year so far, with the introduction of Traveline journey planner, then contactless payment on buses and now Zip Trip. A future development is set to include ticket sales available through Zip Trip – and reinforces how we continue to put customers’ needs first.’
Zip Trip can be downloaded on all Apple's App Store or via Google Play.
