Graham Jones MP using smartcard on Rosso bus

Hyndburn MP Graham Jones gave his seal of approval to the technological revolution that is transforming bus travel in Lancashire when he travelled on well-known Rosso service 464 for a trip from Baxenden to Accrington Bus Station using one of the company's popular Rosso Smartcards.

Commenting on the experience Graham said: "I found the transaction efficient and free from the hassle of having to fumble for change. It is good to see bus companies investing in modern technology and I am sure that Rosso Smartcards will encourage even more people to leave their car at home and use public transport."

Phil Smith, Managing Director of Rosso said: "We were delighted that Graham could join us this morning on one of our busiest services to experience at first hand what over two thousand Rosso Smartcard users are doing every week when they buy our range of weekly and monthly rover tickets on board our bus routes that serve East Lancashire and Greater Manchester."
