Metro Transit-St. Louis to test mobile ticketing platform
Metro Transit-St. Louis is partnering with moovel to pilot a mobile ticketing application, allowing riders to purchase transit fare directly on a mobile device for select trips.
During the six-month pilot period, riders using the Metro Mobile app will be able to purchase round-trip MetroLink passes to St. Louis Cardinals baseball games and St. Louis Blues hockey games, according to a Metro Transit-St. Louis press release.
Riders can purchase fares using a credit card, debit card, PayPal, Google Pay or Apple Pay. To use the ticket, riders will open the app and ‘activate’ the mobile ticket, which is then inspected by MetroLink operators.
The Metro Mobile app uses the latest version of moovel’s mobility technology, which includes an updated user experience and design. Metro Transit will also have access to moovel’s transaction and operations management system, which supports a range of back-end services to increase operational efficiencies for ticket validation.
