myTrip, an affordable digital ticketing and bus tracking app solution for smaller bus operators, was up against five other finalists in the prestigious awards, which celebrate and recognise excellence in UK apps. Following a robust judging period by an influential panel of industry experts, myTrip was announced as the winner during the virtual ceremony streamed on Wednesday 3rd November.
The win comes following a strong 12-month period for myTrip, as it signed up 50 bus operators across the UK within the space of nine months, driving total ticket revenues of over £600,000 and seeing over 50,000 monthly active users – a figure which is increasing by 22% month-on-month.
Passenger CEO Tom Quay said “We’re thrilled to have been awarded ‘Travel App of the Year’ at the UK App Awards for myTrip. After launching a little over a year ago, myTrip has proven a lifeline for many smaller bus operators who have been hit hard by the pandemic, providing a simple, affordable way to upgrade their services and make them appealing to today’s modern traveller.
This award is a testament to all the hard work our brilliant team has done to make myTrip into the success it is today. We look forward to building on myTrip’s exceptional performance in the new year and introducing more operators to its game-changing benefits.”
Operators signed up to myTrip include A2B, Bristol Community Transport, Compass Bus and Coastliner. D&G Buses, which signed up to myTrip in December 2019, dubbed the platform as “the multi-operator solution that smaller bus operators have been waiting for.”
