App Benefits

Welcome to App Benefits! 

App Benefits gives Oxford Bus app users exclusive discounts at various businesses in and around Oxford!  

To access these fantastic benefits, you can either: 

Download the Oxford Bus app here

Option 1: Valid app tickets  

This option is recommended for app users who have purchased tickets valid for an extended period (e.g., 1 Day). This is because activating your ticket will start a countdown for the duration of your ticket’s validity, after which it will no longer be valid for travel. Only activate your ticket if you have enough time remaining to travel as recently expired tickets are NOT valid for travel. 

To purchase a ticket via the Oxford Bus app: 

  1. Create an account with your email address 
  2. Select Mobile Tickets from the menu  
  3. Select Buy a Ticket 
  4. Choose your ticket and follow the prompts to checkout  
  5. Activate your ticket  

Option 2: Recently expired app tickets 

To access your recently expired tickets on the Oxford Bus app:  

  1. Select Settings from the menu 
  2. Select Recently expired tickets in the Ticketing menu  
  3. The timestamps and date of your recently expired tickets will be visible 

Only tickets that expired Today will grant access to the benefit. You must also show the whole process at the point of sale in the participating business as this is part of the ticket verification process – screenshots of Recently expired tickets will not be accepted.
