You asked and it’s finally here – you can have your transit pass on your mobile device! Token Transit allows you to purchase your passes from your device and show your device to the driver.
Here’s how it works:
- Download the Token Transit app.
- Purchase any available fare type, from a single ride to a monthly pass.
- When you’re ready to ride, tap your pass to activate it. Your phone holds all your passes.
- As you board the bus, show the driver your digital ticket.
Want a special bonus? Your first pass purchase as a new user is 50% off! Better hurry, though. You must claim your discounted pass before August 12, 2018. (Some restrictions do apply.)
Do you hate carrying around a paper bus pass that is easily torn and beat up? Check out the new Smart Cards. They are a reloadable pass that makes managing your pass easier and boarding the bus faster. Simply tap your Smart Card to the front corner of the farebox as you board the bus. It’s that easy!
You can load your smart card with a 7-day or 31-day adult, youth or elderly & disabled pass. You can purchase or reload your card at anytime at a ticket vending machine or the customer service window at the Transit Center. The initial pass purchase is an additional $1 over the purchase price of the pass, but it can be used over and over.
