Give the gift of travel

Customers can now gift any available ticket from the mobile app to another user.  Simply buy a ticket as normal and then enter a valid email address to send it.  The ticket can be claimed by redeeming the gift code received and activating it on the users’ mobile device.   This helps customers to look after dependants without needing to give them cash or a debit / credit card, whilst opening up public transport to a whole new generation of travellers through the safe use of a mobile app.
