The City of Atlanta launched the new Atlanta Streetcar mobile ticketing app, designed to make riding the streetcar more convenient and fun for residents and visitors. The intuitive new app, powered by moovel North America, allows passengers to purchase, use, and store tickets instantly on their smartphones — anywhere, anytime.

The Atlanta Streetcar is the first transit system in the metropolitan Atlanta area to offer riders this new way to purchase fares and track real-time arrivals. The app is offered in beta mode for the first 30 days, during which users are invited to try it out and offer feedback.

The Atlanta Streetcar is also introducing new fare options with the launch of the mobile app. Riders can now buy weekly, monthly, and visitor passes with just a few taps on their mobile devices. During the 30-day beta testing period, users will receive one free upgrade for any fare purchase. The app is free to download from Google Play and the Apple app store.

The Atlanta Streetcar partnered with moovel N.A., Tozny, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to create a mobile ticketing app that is innovative and simple for passengers to use.

moovel N.A. and Tozny entered into a cooperative agreement with NIST in 2015 to build better digital identities technologies for transit users. The release of the Atlanta Streetcar app is the first app to have the new technology built-in. NIST's Trusted Identity group leverages partnerships across government and commercial sectors like the one between Atlanta Streetcar, moovel, and Tozny to deliver better digital identity technologies.
