    • Your tickets will appear in the 'My Tickets' section of the app
    • Activate your mobile ticket before you board the train
    • The ticket will then be valid for travel and ready for inspection by rail staff
    • You can activate your ticket even if you don't have any mobile signal, just make sure you have plenty of charge.
    • Some station barriers will have scanners to allow you through, however if they don't you just need to show your mobile ticket to a member of staff on hand at the barrier.


    Things you should know before you choose an m-ticket

    All m-tickets can be exchanged or refunded for a fee, except for Advance tickets (these are non-refundable).

    When using an m-ticket you'll need to:

    • Activate your m-ticket on the day of travel, from within the app, and show it to inspectors while on the train
    • Ensure your mobile is charged – if you are unable to display your m-ticket, you’ll need to buy a new ticket at the full fare.

    Lost or not received your m-ticket?

    Your m-ticket is saved in the ‘My Tickets’ section of the ATW Tickets app. If it hasn't appeared after two hours, or you lose your phone please give our After Sales team a call on 03333 211 202 (option 3). Calls are charged at standard BT rates. Other operators may vary.
