The app uses Masabi’s JustRide Connect technology, which enables best-of-breed city information and transport applications to seamlessly inter-link; connecting passengers to first and last mile transit services. Making use of this to assist customers, rideRTC is integrated with the TransitApp, used by transit riders across the country.

 

The app enables users to:rtc2.png

  • Locate routes and stops near their current location
  • Access arrival times for bus routes
  • Determine real-time location of buses
  • Plan trips, including different forms of transportation, such as the new RTC Bike Share program in downtown Las Vegas and transportation network companies, like Uber and Lyft

To achieve this, JustRide Connect, developed by Masabi, allows riders to seamlessly transfer between a network of best-of-breed applications.

 

Masabi is working with an ever growing network of partners using JustRide Connect to enable to seamlessly integrate information, transport and smart city apps resulting in frictionless door-to-door journeys.

 

This week Masabi has also been exhibiting and speaking at the Transport Ticketing Global conference in London. The annual event is one of the most established in the calendar relating to all things ticketing and fare collection. Our thanks to the organisers and Judged and congratulations to all of the other successful companies.
