The Regional Transportation District of Denver (RTD) earlier this month began to roll out mobile ticketing on the Lyft ride-hailing mobile application. 

Under the partnership, RTD riders will be able to purchase rail fare through the Lyft app to enable a contactless option for planning and paying for multimodal travel all in one place.

In Denver, 58% of Lyft users have reported using a Lyft service to get to or from a transit station, RTD officials said in a press release.

“[The partnership] aligns with RTD’s vision of being the mobility integrator for the region, and it facilitates multimodal travel that closes the first- and last-mile gaps between transit and customers’ destinations," RTD officials said.

Last year, RTD partnered with Lyft to display transit options on the Lyft mobile app. This feature shows riders nearby public transit routes, a walking overview and schedules within the Lyft app. 

Transit ticketing was been enabled through Masabi’s Justride SDK, a mobile ticketing software development kit for public transportation.
