Arriva Trains Wales says it's extending its mobile ticketing system across the country after a successful trial on the Cardiff and Valleys network.

It says customers can make savings using Mobile Multi-flex ticket - the first mobile ticketing system of its kind in the UK.

Tickets can be bought, through an app, to travel between any two places and can be stored on a smartphone for up to three months after the date of purchase.

...we are always trying to understand the needs of our passengers and with the majority of UK employees (77 per cent) working in organisations that provide some kind of flexible working, we had a strong desire to reward loyal users of our trains who do not travel on our services regularly enough to benefit from the savings provided by a normal season ticket.

Brighton based Relentless, who is collaborating with Hasbro to develop multiple new projects, decided to base their work in Wales following Welsh Government funding support of £550,000.

We are so pleased by the Welsh Government backing our new studio in Wales. Without their support, we wouldn’t have been able to keep these new products in the UK, which was, of course, our preference. We are grateful, and also very pleased to be able to help grow the games community in Wales, and that the local talented workforce can obtain high quality development jobs here in Wales.

– Andrew Eades, Director of Relentless

This is a highly strategic project and a significant coup for the digital media sector in Wales. It will be Wales’ second major inward investment games development studio that will create 70 skilled jobs and attract £Ms of investment to Wales from a global entertainment company.

Wales has a growing international reputation as a centre for digital media and I am delighted that a global multinational name like Hasbro is investing in Wales and hope this will lead to further collaboration in the future.

– Edwina Hart AM, Economy Minister
