Nottingham City Transport (NCT) has welcomed its NCTX Buses App’s second birthday by introducing ‘ticket gifting’ for journeys.

The latest version of the app, which is free to download from the App Store and Google Play, enables users to use one device for buying a ticket, which can then be transferred using a gift code to another person and/or device.

“This will help users to look after dependants without needing to give them cash or a debit/credit card, while opening up public transport to a whole generation of travellers through the safe use of a mobile app,” says NCT.

The introduction of NCTX Buses App along with other payment methods, including Easyrider smartcards and Robin Hood cards, has seen the percentage of journeys where customers are paying with cash on the bus falling to just 15%, according to NCT. This is set to drop further in 2019 when contactless payments is introduced on to its buses.
