We all know that the London Midland conductors on our line are jolly nice people, happily checking and issuing tickets, and providing lots of useful advice. But if you are in a rush, and you really want to pick up your ticket whilst on the go, London Midland have launched a ticket office in your pocket service.
Its simple really. Just download the London Midland iPhone app, or tap in http://www.londonmidland.com/mobile/buy-tickets/ into your web-enabled phone, and you can buy your ticket online. You then get a reference number, and you simply type that into the ticket machine at your local station.
That does mean if you live between Kempston Hardwick and Fenny Stratford, you will still have to pay the conductor if you are buying on the day. But we wouldn’t want you to go without their smiling faces, do we?
