The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Southern Nevada, Lyft, and Masabi launched a mobile ticketing solution for public transit, allowing customers in the region to purchase RTC transit passes through the Lyft app.
In 2020, Lyft added local public transit information in-app, allowing riders to compare additional transportation options in Southern Nevada in one seamless experience. Now, with mobile ticketing, riders will have one more way — alongside Lyft rideshare and car rentals — to access reliable and efficient transportation and have an all-in-one-app transportation experience.
The addition of RTC passes to Lyft, in collaboration with RTC’s fare payment provider Masabi, marks another milestone in the move towards a seamless Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) experience for the RTC and their riders. In Las Vegas, approximately 45% of Lyft riders have used the ride share service to get to or from public transit.
RTC transit passes cost the same within the Lyft app as they do using any existing option. To purchase fares within the Lyft app, Southern Nevada customers can look for Transit on the Lyft app home screen, where they can search and compare routes, purchase multiple fares using any credit or debit payment method currently enabled in Lyft, and save unused passes for up to 45 days. When ready to ride, customers can view all available purchased passes and activate a pass with a single tap.
