Plan a journey, buy a great value mobile ticket (mTicket) or check when your bus is due with
live updates – you can do all this and more with the First Bus App making bus travel even

With our door to door route planner, you can check your quickest way to work or plan a new adventure. Much like a typical bus timetable app, you can enter your starting point and destination to view your route options and we’ll show you which of our bus services can get you there. We even provide step-by-step instructions to make your journey hassle free.

You can buy your great value ticket on the First Bus App before you travel. With mTickets, there’s no need to carry cash or worry about having the right change. Plus, some of our tickets are cheaper on the app, so download it to ensure that you receive our best bus ticket prices.
As well as offering similar functionality to other mTicket apps, your payments are secure and there’s even a handy ‘buy again’ button with one-tap checkout, so it’s quick and easy to buy your ticket before you board. You can make a payment by card, apple Pay or PayPal.

The First Bus App is the best way to get live bus times and route information. You can save your favourite stops, stations and locations and revisit recently searched journeys. The map shows the bus stops and train stations nearby and links to live updates, so you can check when your bus is coming and head to your bus stop just before your bus is due.

The First Bus App for iOS also features:
- Tickets for Heathrow RailAir, Buses of Somerset, First Kernow and Bright Bus Tours
- Payments via Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and Apple Pay
- The ability to gift tickets to a child, young person or student

Quick update needed for service change.

First Bus Scotland does not update their service change via apps. I buy weekly passes all the time. It’s a waste of customers money if they didn’t get the service they have been promised. I used to take last bus (X38) from Winchburgh to Falkirk at 11:29pm but that service is not available from February and their app still shows that I can get that last bus. That’s very unprofessional and unreliable from First Bus Scotland.

We’ve traveled to a lot of cities and FirstBus has the best app we’ve used so far. 👏
