NJ TRANSIT'S MOBILE APP PROVIDES MORE TICKET OPTIONS
December 22, 2017
NEWARK, NJ — NJ TRANSIT has upgraded its mobile app to offer additional features and functionality and an enhanced user experience.
“Our goal is to make the NJ TRANSIT mobile app the single source for all of the travel information our customers need, from purchasing tickets to viewing schedules and receiving alerts,” said NJ TRANSIT’s Executive Director Steven H. Santoro. “As technology evolves, we will continue to add additional features to provide customers a streamlined experience right from their cell phones.”
The upgrades allow rail customers to purchase 10-trip tickets, view bus and light rail schedules, and provide more specific travel alerts and advisories.
NJ TRANSIT travel alerts and advisories will now be customizable to selected rail lines and bus routes. After users select the rail line and/or bus route they travel, they will receive service advisories specific to their selections directly through the app.
Upgrades also include the addition of bus and light rail schedules. By entering the origin and destination of a trip and their travel date, customers can view the corresponding bus and light rail schedules in the app.
The use of mobile ticketing through the MyTix app has grown steadily since its introduction in 2013 and there are now more than 1.5 million customer accounts.
