County Hall chiefs are going hi-tech to curb the number of bus shelters being vandalised across Lancashire.
People can now report damage to bus shelters by sending a text message to a dedicated hotline number.
Meanwhile, iPhone owners can download a free app allowing them to send a photo of any damage.
The new initiative means residents can report bus shelter problems such as smashed windows or graffiti to a single contact point.
Rick Wilson, Safer Travel Unit manager at Lancashire County Council, said: “Mindless damage to bus shelters is a real problem across the whole county, but up until now people have been unsure whether to report damage to the police, bus companies or the local authority.”
Lancashire has a total of 2,180 bus shelters spread across the county
