Bytemark and Transit partnered to deploy Bytemark mobile ticketing in the Transit app.
With Bytemark’s powerful fare payment platform and Transit’s top-rated user experience, transit agencies can now deliver one best-of-breed mobile app for trip planning, real-time tracking, fare payment, and multimodal connections to riders.
With this successful deployment news, Transit and Bytemark are working together closely to bring this integration to cities from coast to coast and extend the reach of seamless mobility for transit operators of all sizes.
One of the central focuses of Mobility-as-a Service for both agencies and riders is flexibility. With this offering, Bytemark extends the scope of its Plan, Book & Pay™ account-based platform, Bytemark Bridge. Through this partnership with the customer-facing Transit app, the company offers an additional sales channel, enabling greater personalization, and optimization of the travel experience.
When a rider creates an account, Transit securely stores the user’s information and facilitates the payment using Bytemark’s application programming interface. The app then displays Bytemark’s visually verifiable tickets. If riders already have a Bytemark mobile ticketing account, they can sign in and use their saved information, all from within the Transit app. With Transit, users can also seamlessly access connecting mobility services, like bikeshare and scooters, that also support payments in the app.
The Transit integration can be used in conjunction with other Bytemark offerings, including handheld validation, reporting, web ticket sales, and backoffice solutions.
