Beginning May 14, users of the GoPass app from Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will enjoy new ways to pay for their passes and plan their DART and Trinity Railway Express (TRE) trips.

One of the first transit payment apps when it was launched in 2013, the original version changed the way customers purchased transit passes on their smartphone with a credit or debit card.

A major new feature is the ability to load value to the GoPass app with cash at hundreds of area retailers.

The app also contains a GoPass Wallet that stores value that can be used to purchase tickets for use on DART, TRE, Trinity Metro, and the Denton County Transportation Authority.

Other new GoPass options will allow customers to use "Touch ID" for quicker security acceptance, send receipts to an email address, view various events and offers, save their favorite stations and stops making viewing vehicle arrivals and departures quicker, and give the ability to track buses and trains in real-time.

The cost of a ticket purchased using the GoPass app is the same as tickets purchased from a ticket vending machine or bus farebox and must be activated before boarding any bus or train.
