Masabi and Greensburg, Pennsylvania’s Westmoreland County Transit Authority announced passengers can now purchase tickets to ride the bus via a mobile app. The new mobile ticketing app, WestMore Tix, offers an upgrade to current ticketing options by enabling riders to purchase and display tickets directly on their smartphones. WestMore Tix is now available for download from Google Play and the Apple App Store.

Passengers using Westmoreland’s mobile ticketing app, powered by Masabi’s Justride Mobility Platform, can pay for tickets using a credit or debit card, or via digital payment services such as Masterpass and Apple Pay. Monthly, 10-Trip, and single passes for all three zones are available. Once purchased, passengers activate their tickets and then show them to the driver when boarding the bus.

“This will not only help to modernize our operation, but it will also offer the riders of Westmoreland Transit a convenient and immediate way to purchase tickets,” said Meghan Yuhouse, director of operations at Westmoreland Transit.

Staff also have access to the Justride Hub, the powerful cloud-based back office, where they are able to access an extensive interface for customer service, concessions, fare updates, and revenue and usage reports. They will also have access to a wealth of data, including real-time sales, usage, and validation information.
