Massachusetts Has Got a Mobile Ticket to Ride
Passengers will be able to purchase tickets and passes using the MBTA mTicket iOS and Android apps. The purchased tickets are displayed on the screen of the mobile device as a ‘flash pass’ or barcode.
“With this new application, Commuter Rail users don’t have to wait in line to purchase tickets nor pay a surcharge for buying tickets aboard trains,” said MBTA general manager Jonathan Davis. “Customers may purchase a ticket in seconds – anywhere, anytime. Mobile ticketing offers customers the convenience and simplicity that makes it easier than ever to use public transit.”
