Our App has been developed in partnership with Richmonds Coaches and the App developer, RiseDM to help improve commuting to and from the park. The App is designed to be intuitive but, if you need any help or have any questions about how the App works, ticket t&c’s, cancellations etc then this document should help. There is also a step-by-step set of instructions available please email

Post code and card number do not match

If you have received the message Postal code and card number do not match while trying to add a card to your account or purchase a ticket, you will need to try another card or contact your bank as this is a message that comes from the bank provider themselves.

Buying Tickets

How do I buy a ticket?

  • Go to the Home screen on the App - select the Tickets menu and press +Buy button (bottom right). Choose and purchase your ticket.
  • Sometimes tickets may show as “pending”, this is when your payment has not yet been confirmed by the payment provider. This should usually update to “completed” within 1 or 2 minutes at the most but if this has not been updated then you can use the “pull to refresh” action on the My Tickets screen to refresh your ticket status manually.
  • If you work for AstraZeneca or Lonza, you are eligible for subsidised transport. Go to Ticket Schemes. You will need to request access to your company’s tickets. Once your access request is accepted, download a ticket. Only download one ticket at a time.

I’ve purchased the wrong ticket

If you have purchased the wrong ticket, we are unable to “swap” the ticket over for you. Please use the current ticket until it expires. Check the terms and conditions of the ticket.

How do I get a ticket receipt?

A copy of your ticket receipt will be emailed to you.


Where are my tickets stored?

Valid tickets are stored under Tickets > Purchased tab. Once expired, they will move to Expired.


Why has my ticket disappeared?

If your ticket has ‘disappeared’, go to Tickets and check the Expired tickets tab as your ticket may no longer be valid. Please check the ticket t&c's for details.

How long is my ticket valid for?

Please check your ticket t&c's as validity periods differ depending on the type of ticket purchased.


Can I refund my ticket?

Unfortunately, tickets cannot be refunded.

If I activate my ticket but don’t scan it – what happens?

If you activate your ticket but don’t scan it, the ticket will return to the Purchased ticket wallet. However, if you’ve booked and don’t scan and board, you will be charged.

Boarding, Activating and Scanning Tickets

Problem using my Ticket

If you are having trouble using your ticket then we recommend you review the following advice:

  1. Check that you have a good internet connection as you must be connected to the internet when you open or activate your ticket
  2. If your Ticket won't scan, check that you have a valid reservation for the service you are trying to board. You cannot use a reservation for another service or swap reservations unless within the booking timeframe.
  3. Your Driver will be able to advise the reason why your ticket won’t scan if you are experiencing difficulty with scanning.

What if I’ve activated my ticket too early and it’s no longer valid?

Unfortunately, tickets can't be deactivated once activated but you should still be able to board. Activated tickets are valid up to one hour prior to departure.

  • Let the driver know as your name will be on the passenger list. You may have to wait until other passengers have boarded so, please be patient.

What happens if I’ve booked but forgotten/lost my phone?

Let the driver know as your name will be on the passenger list. You may have to wait until other passengers have boarded so, please be patient.

Can I board without a ticket or reservation?

No ‘walk-on’ passengers are not permitted. It is necessary to travel with a valid ticket and a reservation. If you do not turn up with a ticket or a reservation the driver has the authorisation not to permit travel to Chesterford Research Park.

Can I swap my reservation to an earlier or later service?

To swap, you will need to cancel and rebook more than one hour before the coach service departs. The driver can only accept passengers with a valid reservation. Drivers do not have access to passenger lists for other vehicles and cannot tell you whether that coach is under capacity and has room for you.

If there’s space – why can’t I get on board?

The coach may look like it has room due to social distancing but, if more passengers board further on then, the coach may be at full capacity. Drivers do not have access to other passenger lists and cannot tell you whether that coach is under capacity and has room for you.
