Mobile Ticketing

The Token Transit app allows CAT customers to purchase bus passes with their smartphones, which can then be used as electronic tickets to board buses. To ride, the customer simply shows the bus operator the ticket displayed on the smartphone instead of sticking a pass or cash into the farebox. You can download Token Transit in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Anyone on the internet can purchase and send a Token Transit pass to anyone else in a text message.

Fare capping
Fare Capping limits how much riders pay for all trips taken based off  CAT’s fare structure. You can make as many trips as you like and when all your fares add up to a certain amount, CAT won’t charge customers more and customers will be refunded the difference. Riders will receive an upgraded pass for the remaining amount of time that they would’ve had since the first pass activation that counted towards the cap. For example, if they hit the monthly cap on day 20, they will have a “month pass” for the remaining 11 days of the month after that. If someone activates $50 in one-way trips over the course of 20 days, they will have a month pass for 11 more days.
