The latest release of the app has everything you need to get around Nottingham with NCT Buses. It’s packed full of everything you’ll need to get mobile.

NEW! Mobile Tickets: Purchase mobile tickets securely with Apple Pay or a debit/credit card and show the driver when boarding - no more searching for cash!

NEW! Watch apps: The wearable tech trend is showing no sign of going away, so for those of you with smartwatches, we've made new watch apps for you. You can find the stops closest to you, look up departures from your favourite stops and send any departure board to your watch while using the main app.

Live Departures: Browse and view bus stops on the map, explore upcoming departures, or check out the routes from a stop to see where you could travel next.

Journey Planning: Plan your commute, trip to the shops or night out with friends. With an upgraded planning engine it’ll be even easier to plan your trip with NCT.

Timetables: We’ve squeezed all of our routes and bus times into the palm of your hand.

Favourites: We’ve simplified saving favourites based on your feedback, so now you can quickly save your favourite Departure Boards, Timetables and Journeys, with quick access from one convenient menu.

Disruptions: You’ll be able to keep up to date with service changes directly from our Twitter feed inside the app.

As always, we welcome your feedback. You can send it to us via the app.

Always pioneering travel by public transport

Have to say the creators of the NCT app are always ahead in the game when it comes to adding new features.

The recent update with the Live Buses feature allows you to see where your bus actually is rather than guess it’s on its way.

Hello Mr Paul, Thanks for those kind words, it's great to hear our hard work is appreciated and we're glad that you are enjoying the new live buses feature.

Don’t buy a gift ticket for a child!!!

My mum was taking my children to the cinema in town so I thought I’d make it easy for her and purchased a all day under 19 gift ticket for my 8 year old. Came to activate it this morning and needed a photo, fine. Then we need to take the photo and her birth certificate to the ticket town. She’s already left the house so had no birth certificate. Luckily the driver let her on the bus, although he looked at her gone out. She had to walk down to the market square in the torrential rain with 2 kids, in the hope they could see she was 8 and activate the ticket so she could get home. No, they needed proof that the 8 year old wasn’t actually 20. I appreciate there’s policies but come on, surely she could have shown a bit of common sense and compassion!!! She ended up ringing my dad to come collect her as couldn't face trying to get on the bus again and didn’t want to pay out of principle!! Complete shambles!!

Hey, really sorry to hear about this, When purchasing tickets that require verification the app does warn you that you will need to verify before activating, If you need a hand with this please get in touch with us via the feedback form in the app.

Almost perfect

This app is so good. You get exclusive bus deals that apply to all NCT buses and information on all bus stops and timings. The only issue is that the bus timings aren’t always accurate and it would be better if there was an up-to-date option for specific buses to see if they are however minutes away as many buses don’t stick to the timings. Also would be good if they offered a 24 hour contact number as it’s impossible to know if a bus is just late or never going to turn up at early hours of the morning.
