Southern California’s Metrolink launched the Metrolink Ticket Web Portal, enabling customers to purchase one-way tickets and print them at home. The portal opens for business on Nov. 28.

“Metrolink customers want to make their arrangement when it’s convenient for them and adding the online ticketing portal with the print at home option satisfies that demand,” said Metrolink Interim Co-CEO Ronnie Campbell.

Tickets purchased at the Metrolink Ticket Web Portal contain a secure barcode that is scanned onboard by inspectors using Masabi’s Justride Inspect Handheld app. The portal also allows the option of sending tickets to mobile devices, which is useful for customers who may have a smartphone.

“By going beyond mobile and making tickets available to a broader range of users we are increasing the convenience of public transit and helping customers who don’t want to wait in line at ticket vending machines,” said Brian Zanghi, CEO of Masabi, developer of the Justride platform.

The online ticketing portal offers the purchase of one-way tickets only without transfers to Metro buses or rail or other transit providers. Transfers to other transit systems will require separate tickets. Metrolink’s online ticketing portal is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge internet browsers.
