Can’t amend number in booking

I think this service is amazing. One piece of feedback though is that you cannot edit number of passengers (from 1 to 2). I had to cancel my order and rebook. When I cancelled I got a message stating “cancelling will be changed for in the future.” That is fair enough if I was cancelling to cancel but I was simply cancelling to rebook as I could not find a way to add a passenger to my trip.

Brilliant service

An amazing service which gives residents living in a village reliable transport when you need it. Very pleasant drivers always willing to help & drop off wherever I requested.
Only issue is that i received a text message re a booked ride but the app is not responding both for my ride today & my pre arranged ride tomorrow.
Deleted my app but this didn’t sort out the issue.
Eventually the bus arrived but the driver had spoken to control he hadn’t received any instructions (he knew I was coming back as I told him when I’d been dropped off about 10mins before)
There is no way of contacting the digibus people to try & sort out the issue. Completely understand as you wouldn’t contact anyone if there was as an issue with the timetable bus not turning up.
