EYMS: Tap your phone to catch a bus
Local bus company East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS) has launched a brand new app to revolutionise travel for East Yorkshire commuters.
The free EYMS Buses app allows travellers to buy tickets, plan journeys and track buses direct from their smartphone. As well as providing all the information needed to catch a bus, the EYMS Buses app also gives passengers a greater choice of tickets, including some tickets that are exclusive to the app, and some tickets which are cheaper on the app than on the bus.
Commercial Manager Bob Rackley said: “We’ve been trialling the app with a small pilot group for some time, and everyone who’s tried it has said how easy and simple it is to use. We believe this new app will transform the way people will travel around the region, as well as helping many people save money on travel costs. Buying your bus ticket through your mobile is so convenient, as you can use your credit or debit card, and some tickets are cheaper on the app too.”
Hull resident Pete, a regular bus user, has been trialling the app for several weeks, and has found that it really helps him when travelling. “The app is a great idea, and works perfectly,” he says. “Finding your way around the menu is simple, and it’s so easy to use that even my five year old nephew was able to use it to plan a journey. I love the bus tracker, as it means I spend a lot less time waiting at the bus stop, and it’s definitely going to make my life a lot easier.”
The EYMS Buses app is available now for free from the App Store and Google Play.
