How to use your mTicket:
Your mTickets will appear as 'purchased' under 'My Ticket Wallet' in your App.
When you want to use it, choose the ticket you want (they are listed from oldest at the top to newest at the bottom) and select 'Activate now' – just to double check, you'll be asked to confirm that you want to activate this ticket.
When a ticket is 'Activated', the App will generate a moving image ticket on your phone's screen; this will stay active for the amount of time the ticket is valid for.
You need to show this to the driver when you get on the bus so they can check the ticket.
