Southern California Metrolink launches mobile ticketing

Monday 7 March 2016 | 19:19 CET | News
Southern California regional commuter rail service Metrolink has launched the first version of the Metrolink Mobile App for iOS and Android, which uses Masabi's JustRide mobile ticketing system. Since the Metrolink was formed in 1991, passengers purchasing tickets and passes at stations only had the option of using a ticket vending machine. They can now buy tickets directly on their smartphone instead. Metrolink is trialling the system on the Inland Empire-Orange County Line in March. Beginning in early April, mobile ticketing will be expanded to the entire Metrolink system.
