NJ TRANSIT announced it is introducing a pilot program that will allow customers to buy tickets for travel on the Atlantic City Rail Line (ACRL) online.
This new pilot program began on May 31.
“NJ TRANSIT continues to research and implement new ways to offer additional fare payment options for our customers,” said Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti, NJ TRANSIT Board chair. “This new pilot program will give customers another way to purchase tickets and utilize our services while expanding our customer base to include those who may not have access to the mobile app and may be more comfortable purchasing tickets through the website.”
How Mobile Tickets Can Be Purchased
NJ TRANSIT rail, light rail, and bus tickets can all be purchased through the NJ TRANSIT mobile app.
However, this pilot program expands the option to purchase ACRL tickets directly through the corporation’s website.
Customers only need a valid e-mail address and a credit/debit card to purchase tickets from a desktop, laptop, tablet, or even a cell phone with internet access.
Additionally, this program benefits visitors from outside of the region attending events in Atlantic City or Philadelphia – who may not wish to download the NJ TRANSIT mobile app and set up an account profile for just one trip.
Customers can buy their tickets online and print them before traveling, or bring up the tickets via email on their mobile device and travel with a mobile electronic ticket.
