Masabi and Transfort, the transit agency for the City of Fort Collins, Colo.,  announced the launch of a new fare collection system for Fort Collins’ riders. The system will help remove the need for passengers to carry cash or wait in line to buy a ticket when boarding the bus, improving the rider experience and helping to reduce wait times. The service is available on all Flex and other bus routes, with the MAX BRT line being enabled later in the year.

The solution allows Colorado State University students to use their existing student ID card (RamCard) to tap to travel when boarding bus services. The system uses Masabi’s Justride Account-Based back office and gives Transfort the ability to turn on Account-Based fares for all riders when required.

Transfort E-ticket gives riders the ability to buy tickets via their mobile device before they travel. Passengers who qualify for discounted senior or disabled passes may also use the app by purchasing their passes from a customer service agent at one of Transfort’s three transit centers. Riders can scan their mobile barcode tickets on the new electronic validation devices when boarding the bus.
