RT Launches New Mobile Fare App - Riders Can Purchase RT Tickets and Passes from a Smartphone


CONTACT: Alane Masui Monday, January 04, 2016
To improve the convenience of buying tickets and passes, the Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT) has launched a new “RideSacRT” mobile fare app. The mobile fare app allows customers to purchase, save and use fare for RT bus and light rail trips directly from a smartphone.

The free mobile app is a six-month pilot program developed by mobile payment provider Passport that will initially offer Basic and Discount single ride and daily passes. An added benefit to using the mobile app is that single ride fare is valid for up to 90 minutes once activated, which means that an RT mobile ticket can be used to ride both bus and light rail. However, the ticket must be valid for the duration of a light rail trip. In addition, up to 10 RT tickets or passes can be purchased and stored on the mobile app for later use until June 30, 2016.

After the conclusion of the pilot program, RT will transition RideSacRT to a permanent mobile app with additional features.

RideSacRT also offers riders the ability to plan their trip and track buses in real-time. The mobile app is now available for download at the App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android). For more information, visit sacrt.com or call 916-321-BUSS (2877).
