Ticket delivery details: You can print your own "e-ticket" (rather than wait for a ticket to be posted to you). It is most convenient if you are on a machine which has a printer connected, although a copy will be sent by e-mail which you can print later. It is also possible to pay a small charge for an "m-ticket". In this case a text message will be sent to your mobile phone and you will need to show this to the driver when you board.
