Extremely easy to purchase tickets
My family and I went to Edinburgh on holiday and used the bus system to get around town. Our previous experience with bus systems in big cities was our trip to Dublin and that was kind of chaotic. I was very impressed on how easy it was to get on and off the bus and buy tickets with this app. We simply purchased five family day passes with the app and it loads right up for us to use. It puts all the tickets in your "available" section and as you need to use them, you activate one ticket at a time per day and it expires at 4 AM I believe. All you have to do is hold your phone up to the bus driver and he lets you on, it's that easy.
I would highly recommend this app to help you get around Edinburgh, along with the Bus & Tram app, which will help you plan your bus and tram routes to get you to where you need to go in Edinburgh.
Perfect for travel around city
We were in Edinburgh for 4 days, this was perfect! Paid for a Family Day pass, actually paid for 2 at a time as you have to spend at least 10 GBP each purchase. The pass was 8.75 and gave access to the buses and trams for 24 hours for 2 adults and 2 children, we are 2 adults and one 15 year old (who counts as a child) so this was the best “getting around” option. Just showed the app screen to driver or the porter asking for tickets.
Great if your in town more than 4 days
The app is so very easy to use, never worry you don't have exact change. Between this and the bus route app they are a great pair. The only down side is you have to purchase a min £10 which is 7 individual tickets or 3 day passes. There is an option to share tickets (each person would need their own phones) so maybe you can get one person to buy and then you could hit the minimum.
