Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA) is partnering with Masabi and Transit to expand its account-based ticketing system, allowing riders to purchase reusable smartcards for more convenient and affordable travel.
The new account-based ticketing system, which is powered by Masabi’s Justride platform and available through Transit, RTA’s official app, uses fare capping technology to ensure all riders are charged the best possible price for their journey.
RTA riders can purchase smartcards from newly installed Ticket Vending Machines (TVMs) and add funds to their account using cash or credit and debit cards. Riders can also visit any retail outlet signed up to InComm Payments’ VanillaDirect cash-in payment platform. To preload cash onto their Tapp Pay account, retailers scan a barcode on riders’ Tapp Pay card or Tapp Pay in the Transit app. The validation of tickets is carried out using Masabi’s Justride Validator units (JRVs), which have been installed onboard RTA’s bus fleet.
