Last two years I've been getting the Unirider bus pass on their physical bus passes. However, this year it's only available on the stagecoach mobile app. I don't understand why, as it's not even cheaper, but has gone up in price a lot again.
My biggest issue is is that to use the pass, you have to have internet access every time you get on a bus. However, I frequently use it in dead zones, where there is no WiFi and no data access, due to the nature of my course. As such, I have no idea what to do, and I just want to know why this change has happened. I keep having panic attacks over how every day I am going to stress over whether I will have internet access that day or not, since it's incredibly intermittent. Or how much I am going to have to spend buying extra tickets when it works.
The only alternative is buying the regular student ticket at around £900 compared to the £300 Unirider covering the exact same usage dates and area availability
