Riding the Bus in Colorado Just Got Easier With The New Bustang Mobile Ticketing App

The new JustRide Bustang app allows passengers to purchase tickets anytime, anywhere

 

Denver and New York – December 21st, 2017  Bustang riders now have another way to purchase tickets. The new JustRide Bustang mticketing app allows riders to purchase single ride, 10-ride, 20-ride or 40-ride passes and view schedules and fares. It is available for download from Google Play and Apple App stores.

 

Implementation of the new app means passengers no longer need to Screen Shot 2017-12-21 at 18.55.19.pngscan their ticket when boarding. They simply activate the ticket and show it to the driver when getting on the bus. Once a ticket is purchased, it can be activated offline without an internet connection, so a rider always has a ticket. 

 

“The new JustRide Bustang app provides riders with a leading technology that’ll make their experience more convenient,” said the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Division of Transit & Rail Director Mark Imhoff. “We’re pleased we can implement a proven solution that’ll benefit our customers by saving time and improving the quality of our service.”

 

Masabi’s end-to-end, cloud-based mobile ticketing system, Justride, combines award-winning apps for ticket purchase, display and inspection along with back-end infrastructure for secure payments, ticket and fare management, customer service, reporting and real-time analytics. The platform has already proven its success with deployments in cities around the world including Boston, Athens, London, New Orleans, Las Vegas and New York’s MTA - the largest transit agency in the U.S. As part of the deployment Justride will be using Mastercard Payment Gateway Services to enable simple, safe and secure in-app digital payments.

 

“Our Justride Platform is a driver behind the market shift toward a more seamless transit experience for riders,” said Masabi CEO Brian Zanghi. “The deployment of the platform on Bustang’s fleet is an example of how Justride can transform ticketing for transit agencies. We’re excited to offer riders a convenient solution that will streamline their journeys and improve their experience from beginning to end.

 

Bustang offers daily coach service through the I-70 corridor between Glenwood Springs and Denver, and along I-25 between Fort Collins and Colorado Springs. Bustang’s climate controlled coaches are equipped with WiFi access, USB outlets and restrooms.

Ace Express of Golden operates Bustang for CDOT. For more information, please visit: http://www.ridebustang.com.
