NJ TRANSIT expands mobile ticketing app to interstate bus routes

Posted on May 10, 2016

NJ TRANSIT is capitalizing on the success of the NJ TRANSIT mobile app by announcing the ability for bus customers to purchase one-way tickets for select New York/New Jersey interstate routes.

The agency's bus customers will now be able to use the popular mobile app to purchase their one-way tickets for interstate bus travel on four bus routes. The NJ TRANSIT mobile app's popularity has grown steadily since its inception in 2013 as the My Tix program, with 800,000 customer accounts. This latest enhancement provides another option for ticket-purchases for customers.

The app is available for free download on any web-enabled iOS or Android device. To make a purchase, customers simply install the app and then create an account, which will securely save a customer's profile information and purchase history for ease of use.

"Customers have told us how much they love the ease and convenience that mobile apps provide,’’ said NJ TRANSIT’s interim Executive Director Dennis Martin. “We are very excited to offer this latest expansion of the mobile app as it gives our bus customers the ability to purchase tickets for their New York/New Jersey interstate travels. With every new app release we continue to make it even better.’’

The NJ TRANSIT mobile ticketing has continued to evolve. In September 2015,  customers were offered the convenience and ease to utilize their mobile devices to access MyTix, NJ TRANSIT train schedules, DepartureVision, MyBus and trip planning functionality, allowing them to quickly make travel plans, buy tickets and get transit information. Also at that time, all customers were offered the chance to pay with PayPal, allowing NJ TRANSIT customers to transfer payments electronically
