Sales of mobile transport tickets reached £1.2 million on Tuesday 2nd January, 17 times more than in 2015, proving that the Great British public are more mobile than ever before.

Corethree, the European mobile ticket and payment solutions provider, has announced record-breaking figures of 95,000 mobile tickets issued on the first full working day of 2018, as the majority of Britain returns to work and school after the Christmas break.

Having accelerated sales figures from the same day back in 2017 by over half a million pounds, Corethree's trail-blazing success is unquestionably revolutionising the way that Britain travels.

The top regions for mobile ticket usage were:

  1. Manchester
  2. Bristol
  3. Leeds
  4. Brighton
  5. Glasgow

"People are becoming more aware of the benefits of mobile ticketing; we offer solutions for everyone, from schoolchildren to city workers, and while we are showing no signs of slowing down our innovative developments, likewise our passengers are showing no signs of slowing down in embracing mobile technology for their daily journeys." says Ashley Murdoch, CEO of Corethree.

" One end-user claimed that he loved using the mobile ticketing app as it allowed him an extra fifteen minutes in bed every day – nobody's going to turn that down on a cold, January morning, are they?' says Ashley Murdoch, CEO of Corethree.

With a lucrative client base including Arriva Group, Transport for London, Transport for Edinburgh and First Group under its belt, Corethree's spearheading technology and unrivalled success is undoubtedly only set to continue to soar in 2018.
