How do we use your personal information?
Your personal information is mainly used to offer you bus tickets, provide you with good

We also use your information to improve and personalize our services and marketing to ensure you have the best possible customer experience. Below you will find a list of our various processing activities and the information we may process during each activity:

Buying and changing tickets
When you buy a ticket from us, we are entering into an agreement with you. We need information about you and your tickets to fulfil our part of the agreement. We need access to your active tickets so we can help you find a ticket you have purchased online.
Here we can use information such as name, contact information, customer number, payment information, search and sales.
If you want to travel with us without providing personal information, you can do this by buying a single ticket from a driver, salesperson or from a ticket vending machine. In these circumstances we will not have any information about you as a passenger, but it also means that we cannot inform you in any way other than real time onboard our busses.

Managing your profile
We want to make it easy for you to manage your profile. To do this, we need to collect information about payment methods and favorite routes from your profile, and that means we need to know who you are, how you pay and what your favorite routes are. We need access to your active and expired tickets to make it easy for you to manage your tickets via your profile. This is necessary for us to fulfil our agreement with you about the use of your profile.

not use your Hop On profile for three years, it will automatically be erased.
Purchase and travel history are normally erased after 410 days in line with data protection and information security standards for public transport. In some cases, we may retain
