Mobile phones are just the ticket for bus users.

From next Aug 25, people living in Braintree, Brentwood, Chelmsford and the surrounding villages will be able to buy First bus tickets on their smart phone via a new app, ‘First Bus Mobile Tickets’.

They can then show the driver the ticket on their mobile phone screens to travel.

The app is available from the App Store and Google Play.
