Calif.’s Metrolink commuter rail line announced that it’s now even easier to avoid traffic and purchase a ticket for commuter rail services with the introduction of Apple Pay® for the Metrolink mobile ticketing app. The addition of Apple Pay® enables customers to purchase tickets with just a tap, eliminating the need to type in any credit card numbers, billing info, or security codes to complete a transaction.

The use of Apple Pay® is fast, secure, and part of a technology transformation investment Metrolink has made over the past seven months, which includes a new website and GPS train tracker, as well as the launch of “Scan & Go” that lets Metrolink App users scan their phones at Metro Rail gates to seamlessly continue their journeys.

“Currently, more than 40 percent of our riders are using the Metrolink mobile app to buy their tickets, benefitting from convenience and time savings,” said Metrolink Chair Andrew Kotyuk. “As part of our focus on customer service, we are adding Apple Pay so riders have even more choices.”

To use Apple Pay®, customers log in to Metrolink’s mobile app, select a ticket or pass, choose "Pay with Apple Pay®" and complete the payment using the Touch ID® or Face ID®feature.

The Metrolink App is powered by Masabi’s Justride Mobility Platform.

“We’re very excited to offer Apple Pay® as another payment option to Metrolink commuter rail riders.” said Brian Zanghi, CEO of Masabi. “Our primary goal at Masabi is increasing the convenience of public transit, and making payments as seamless as possible is one way we further that mission every day.”
