FAQ's:

What if I can't remember my login? 

If you can't remember your email you used, customer services can provide you with this, just call 08000 51 56 51, and we'll be happy to assist.

Will all my tickets transfer over?

Yes, any purchased ticket you had on our current m-ticket app either active or unused, will transfer over, as long you create a new account with the same email.

When is the last date I can buy a ticket in the current m-ticket app?

Sunday 7 October is the last date, after this, all m-tickets will be switched off, and you will have to migrate to our new app, where any existing tickets you had purchased will appear.

What if I don't want to merge over until my existing ticket expires?

All existing tickets on our current m-ticket app will be deactivated, meaning they will not be available for use from this date. To use your purchased m-tickets, download the new 'McGill's Buses App' and your tickets will be there.

I gift my kids a ticket, will this feature still be there?

This feature will be added at a later date, however, it will not be available when we launch the new app. Please call 08000 51 56 51, to find your best alternative option.
