App Available for Suffolk County Bus Services Across Long Island
Suffolk County, NY -- September 24, 2018 -- Suffolk County Transportation, the transit agency serving Suffolk County, New York, announced it has launched a new mobile ticketing application for riders. The app, Suffolk FastFare, is available for use on all Suffolk County Transit buses and offers an upgrade to current paper ticket options by allowing riders to purchase tickets on their smartphones anytime, anywhere and then display them on screen.
Passengers using Suffolk FastFare can pay for tickets using a credit or debit card, or via digital payment services such as Masterpass and Apple Pay. There are a variety of ticket bundle options available including 2-ticket, 10-ticket and 20-ticket bundles. When passengers purchase the 20-ticket bundle, they also get one ride free included in their purchase. Tickets are then displayed on screen as a digital watermark, which are shown to the driver when boarding the bus. The app is also integrated with Transloc’s Rider app so riders can get quick access to real-time bus times and alerts. Suffolk FastFare is available for download from both the App Store and Google Play.
“We’re extremely excited to partner with Suffolk County Transit to bring a more seamless journey experience to bus riders on Long Island,” said Brian Zanghi, CEO of Masabi, “ We’re delighted to be working with such an innovative and forward thinking agency, and look forward to bringing further exciting innovations to market with them in the future.”
