Passport splitting GoTucson transit, parking apps to improve usability

Posted on July 21, 2017

Mobile technology provider Passport and Ariz.’s City of Tucson will split the GoTucson mobile application’s parking and transit functions into two separate mobile apps — GoTucson Parking and GoTucson Transit. Splitting the application into two will enhance the user experience and improve app functionality.

The dedicated mobile apps will provide users with a streamlined user experience, a smoother and simpler interface, and quicker response times for both parking and transit processes.

With the GoTucson Transit app, Tucson residents and visitors can purchase their transit passes anywhere, thereby avoiding lines at the kiosks at the streetcar stops, transit centers, and sales outlets. Through the GoTucson Parking app, drivers can pay, extend, and manage their metered parking sessions using their smartphones, reducing the risk of parking tickets.

Both apps allow users to easily manage their transit or parking experience with a few taps on their mobile devices.

“By splitting the mobile applications into GoTucson Transit and GoTucson Parking, we are able to improve app functionality and design, making the overall experience faster and more intuitive,” said Drew Myers, director, operations, at Passport.
