Transit app adds integrated mobile ticketing

Trip-planning app Transit has added integrated mobile ticketing and payment into its app through a partnership with Software-as-a-Service company Masabi. The ticketing service will launch with the St. Catharines Transit Commission in Ontario.

The new feature allows Transit users to request fare types, make payments and display virtual tickets. The launch makes Transit the only app to integrate tip planning and payment across public transportation, bike-share, car-share and ride-hailing services.

Transit and Masabi are making the Justride SDK platform available as a standalone service or alongside existing ticketing apps. Participating agencies will also get access to data like real-time sales, usage and validation information.
