Ticket gifting is now live in our app.
Ticket gifting allows you to purchase your child’s mTicket and transfer it directly to their phone*, so there’s no need for them to have a credit or debit card of their own or others stored.
Step by Step
Once you’ve downloaded the app and purchased their ticket, it couldn’t be easier to gift it to your child by following these simple steps**.
|1. Pick the ticket you want to gift from your mTicket wallet by selecting the ‘share’ icon.||2. Confirm you want to gift this ticket.|
|3. Choose how you want to gift this ticket.||4. Recipient will receive a notification.|
*The First Bus App must be installed on the phones of both parties and each must have an mTickets account. Only child and young persons tickets can be gifted. Tickets that can be gifted show the share icon
**Some steps have been removed.
For children aged 11-16, a valid igo ID card must be shown to the bus driver along with the activated mobile ticket.
igo ID cards are issued by the local transport authority TfGM, not First Bus. For more information, visit: http://igo.tfgm.com/
