Bluffton, S.C.’s Palmetto Breeze and Masabi launched a new mobile ticketing application for riders.

The new app, BreezePass, which is developed on Masabi’s JustRide platform, is available for The Breeze, the recently launched Hilton Head Island public trolley service, as well as bus services Palmetto Breeze provides across all five Lowcountry counties including Beaufort, Jasper, Allendale, Colleton, and Hampton. The app will offer an upgrade to current ticketing options by allowing riders to purchase and display tickets on their Android or Apple smartphones anytime, anywhere.

Passengers using BreezePass can pay for tickets using a credit or debit card, or via digital payment services such as Masterpass and Apple Pay. Tickets are displayed on-screen as a digital watermark and contain a dynamic and encrypted barcode. Following purchase, passengers activate tickets and then show them to a driver when boarding. Mobile fares include one-way, round-trip, seven-day and 30-day passes. Once purchased, tickets are available offline so riders are never left without their ticket.

As part of the deployment, Justride will be using Mastercard Payment Gateway Services to enable simple, safe, and secure in-app digital payments.

“At Masabi, we’ve always strived to make public transit ticketing and payments as quick and simple as possible for riders,” said Brian Zanghi, CEO of Masabi. “We’re excited to bring our ticketing solutions to Palmetto Breeze services and the newly opened Breeze Trolley.”
