It's been a busy last few weeks. We have hit our fair fares target for number of passengers. We have introduced m ticketing and we now run a service to east midlands airport.
By hitting our target for passengers we have been able to freeze our fares until at least July. We strongly felt that by keeping our fares as low as possible we could grow the number of passengers on our services. Part of the fair fares experiment is our ten trips for ten pounds offer. We wanted to encourage people that might be thinking about leaving the car at home to give the bus a chance.
Our m ticketing allows us to offer all our unlimited travel tickets as a paperless tickets. So far the trials have gone well and everyone seems happy with the simple process for buying. Whilst probably not right for everyone we hope that some people will find it a more convenient way of buying tickets.
Our red flyer service to the airport (redflyer.co.uk) has now taken off. Early passenger numbers have been encouraging and the support from staff at the airport has been fantastic. Our drivers are really enjoying working on what is out first commercial coach service. Hopefully the first of many.
Lastly we are currently carrying out trials on something that will be of real benefit to our passengers. More news soon
