A RANGE of flexible tickets have been launched by a bus company this week to help customers as Covid-19 restrictions ease.

First Bus has introduced its First Day Bundles range through its smartphone application, including five, 10 and 15 day options with customers able to use tickets whenever they need them.

Graeme Macfarlan, commercial director for First Bus in Scotland, said: "The impact of Covid 19 and this global pandemic will be felt for some time to come and the traditional working environment is no different.

"Companies are now adapting to a new way of working with a blend of the traditional and the new workplace lifestyles.

"As a result of this, we too have to adapt our offering to help our customers fit their bus travel around that new working life."

The flexible bundles, which became available on Monday April 26, allow customers to redeem day tickets for travel as needed within a validity period of two, four or six weeks, depending on the size of the bundle.

The company said a 15-day ticket bundle covering the Forth Valley, Falkirk and West Lothian can save customers almost half the price when compared to just buying day tickets.

Mr Macfarlan added: "These will offer our customers great value with the added bonus of the flexibility to use them as and when they need to travel.

"We will continue to monitor demand for these tickets as well as new travel patterns as restrictions ease and the new normal comes into further focus with a view to further enhancing our offering to better suit the needs of our passengers going forward.

"We are keen to understand our customers' needs in regards to this new product and so urge them to share feedback with us via our website, through our social media channels or via our customer service team."
