A new mobile phone app officially launched today (October 14) is proving an instant hit with people travelling by tram in Nottingham.
More than 3,000 people have already downloaded NETGO! – which makes
it cheaper, quicker and even easier to get around the city by tram.
Andrew Conroy, Chief Operating Officer of NET concessionaire Tramlink Nottingham, explained: “Over the past couple of weeks we’ve used social media to invite customers to try out the app ahead of the official launch, and it’s been met with a fantastic response.
“The low-key trial has demonstrated that NETGO! looks set to be a game-changer when it comes to planning a tram trip, as demonstrated by the positive reviews on the App Store.”
The app is also free to download from Google Play and offers quick and easy access to NET’s most popular travel offers, as well as up-to-date travel information. Users can also plan tram journeys using the network map and have instant access to a history of their tram ticket purchases.
It can be used to buy single, day and group tickets while on the go and, to celebrate the launch, all tickets purchased through the app are cheaper than if customers bought them at the ticket machine.
“This is the first phase of our app development and it will continue to evolve over the coming months.”Andrew said.
“At the same time we’re also pleased to be supporting a local business through the app, which has been built by city centre-based developer Gooii Ltd.”
“As well as making it easier to hop on a tram, the app will bring together everything you need to know about travelling on the network into the palm of your hand!”
