About this app

Plan a journey, buy a great value mobile ticket (mTicket) or find where your bus is with live bus times – you can do all this and more with the First Bus App, making bus travel even easier.

PLAN YOUR JOURNEY
With our door to door route planner you can check your quickest route to work or plan a new adventure and help you to get around at the weekend. Just enter a destination to view your route options and we’ll show you which of our bus services can get you there with step-by-step instructions.

CHECK LIVE BUS TIMES
The First Bus App is the best way to get live bus times and route information. You can save your favourite stops, routes and locations and revisit recently searched journeys. The map shows the bus stops nearby where you can see live updates to check where and when your bus is coming letting you head to your bus stop just before your bus is due.

BUY YOUR MOBILE TICKET (MTICKET)
You can buy your great value bus ticket on the First Bus App before you travel so with mTickets there’s no need to carry cash or worry about having the right change. Some of our tickets are cheaper on the app so get it downloaded for our best bus ticket prices. Payments are secure and there’s a handy ‘buy again’ button with one-tap checkout making repeat purchases even quicker and easier to do.

The app also features:
• Tickets for Heathrow RailAir, Buses of Somerset and First Kernow.
• Payments via Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Google Pay and Apple Pay.
• The ability to gift tickets to a child or young person.

App WAS great, used to be able to track buses then they went a ruined it with an update and now you can't track buses.. App is now only useful for ticket purchasing. Shame, it was perfect before. Won't be recommending this app to people like I have been doing with the previous version..

The new update makes this app borderline unusable, it was fine the way it was, now bus stop locations sometimes just don't show up on the map at all, which is pretty terrible for when you need to catch a bus in a hurry and can't check the timetable for your stop

Somehow first bus has done it again making the app more unstable than it was originally. Don't fix stuff which wasn't broken to begin with. Always "technical difficulties" in the mornings and unable to buy tickets. Fix your £%#@!

We’ve given the app a new look and feel:

• Searching for locations, stops or services is now easier than ever before using the new buttons to tailor your search all from one place
• Trimmed down the navigation
