METRO to Offer Mobile Ticketing App

img
From Anderson Twp

Buying a METRO monthly pass or METRO bus or streetcar ticket will soon be streamlined. The Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority launches a new public transit fare purchase program later this summer to be accessed on smartphones and tablets.

With the app, passengers can plan, track their bus in real-time and pay for their trip in one simple, secure step. Also a rider can purchase bus and streetcar fare electronically through a cell phone or tablet. Riders then display the fare purchase on their mobile device for validation. Visit the METRO web site for details.

Anderson Township hosts a METRO Park and Ride at Anderson Center Station, 7832 Five Mile Road, and has several routes that serve the community.
