RT Extends Mobile Fare

August 17, 2016 General

To improve the convenience of buying tickets and passes, RT launched a new

“RideSacRT” mobile fare app in January 2016. The mobile fare app allows customers to purchase, save and use fare for RT bus and light rail trips directly from a smartphone.

The six-month pilot program, developed by mobile payment provider Passport, has been extended until December 31, 2016. After the conclusion of the pilot program, RT will transition RideSacRT to a permanent mobile app with additional features.

The mobile fare app currently offers Basic and Discount single ride tickets and daily passes. An added benefit to using the mobile fare app is that single ride fare is valid for up to 90 minutes once activated, which means that an RT mobile ticket can be used to ride both bus and light rail. However, the ticket must be valid for the duration of a light rail trip.

Tickets and passes can be purchased now and stored on the mobile fare app for use until June 30, 2016. Tickets and passes purchased on or after July 1, 2016, will be at the new rate and valid until December 31, 2016.

The mobile app is available for download at the App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android). For more information, visit sacrt.com or call 916-321-BUSS (2877).
