TRAVELMASTER TICKETS AVAILABLE TO BUY ONLINE THIS APRIL
27 March 2019
PASSENGERS in South Yorkshire will soon be able to purchase their great value and flexible multi-modal and multi-operator smart TravelMaster tickets online as a new eCommerce system is introduced from the 7th April 2019.
TravelMaster’s eCommerce platform will allow customers to purchase 1, 7 & 28 Day tickets, that are valid on all buses, trams and trains throughout South Yorkshire, online through the TravelMaster website. Customers will also be able to purchase First South Yorkshire Tickets through the site.
The new system means that customers will be able to buy their transport tickets at their own convenience at home, at work or anywhere else that they can access the internet without having to worry about having the correct change on board or having to go out of their way to find somewhere that sells the ticket they need.
With the TravelMaster Download App any ticket that a customer buys through the website can be loaded to their smart card using any Android device with an NFC reader and the app installed. This means that it doesn’t matter if they don’t have their own Android device so long as they know someone who does.
Announcing the introduction of the new system Matt Smallwood, General Manager of TravelMaster, said “We know this is something our customers have wanted for a long time, so I am delighted that we are able to offer this innovative eCommerce system for them.
TravelMaster has an envious reputation for innovation and the ambitious plans we have around how we sell our products will see us maintain this by making it even easier for our customers to buy their ticket before they travel.
We’re hopeful that as the system is enhanced with more places to collect purchased products added throughout the year, and as more people buy their tickets off-vehicle, we will also contribute to increased punctuality through reducing delays that can be caused by tickets being bought on board”.
To purchase a ticket a customer will simply visit sytravelmaster.com, register their existing smartcard, select their product and pay with a major debit or credit card. This will then be queued for collection and can then be loaded to their smart card through any NFC Android device with the TravelMaster Download App installed; the App is available from the Google Play Store.
From the 7th April 2019 customers can buy TravelMaster full price products, First South Yorkshire full price Products; TravelMaster and First Under-18 Products, for holders of MegaTravel and Student 16-18 Passes, will also be available.
During May 2019 TravelMaster plans to introduce compatibility with its 18-21 Discount Card to provide a 15% discount for Under-22-year olds when they purchase tickets through the system and later in the year will also introduce the ability for customers to collect their pre-purchased tickets on board.
