Travelling around Glasgow just got smarter
City’s main bus operators work in partnership to deliver The Glasgow Tripper
Today, Humza Yousaf, Minister for Transport and the Islands, officially launched the Glasgow Tripper; a new multi-operator smart card that offers bus customers in and around Glasgow access to more than a thousand buses from the city’s main bus operators.
The Glasgow Tripper smart card has been developed by Glasgow’s bus companies First Glasgow, McGill’s, Glasgow Citybus, Stagecoach West Scotland and Whitelaws - to make it easier for customers to travel across all of their services, with just one ticket.
Customers can order their personalised Glasgow Tripper card at www.glasgowtripper.com and then add tickets to it on the bus, making it easier for customers to seamlessly travel across a wide bus network. The Tripper serves the city and surrounding areas including Barrhead, Lenzie, Paisley, Old Kilpatrick, Howwood and Eaglesham.
Ticket types currently available on bus include an adult and child day ticket priced at £5 and £2.50 respectively. A range of weekly tickets will follow in early 2018, along with the ability to buy tickets online.
The introduction of the Glasgow Tripper card is evidence of the bus industry’s commitment to providing a convenient, dependable and affordable public transport service for the city – and beyond.
The Glasgow Tripper card was officially launched at the Glasgow Science Centre by the Scottish Transport Minister, alongside representative from the bus companies involved in the multi-operator scheme.
