How Would You Use MBTA Mobile Ticketing?

The MBTA Commuter Rail’s mobile ticketing system has been a success thus far. How else should the T use the new app?

How Would You Use MBTA Mobile Ticketing?

Commuter rail riders are purchasing rail tickets in droves since the Monday launch of the MBTA’s new mobile ticketing system.

As of Wednesday, the app has been downloaded 6,000 times totaling $10,000, according to a Tweet from @mbtaGM.

The MBTA mTicket system, which uses the JustRide mobile ticketing platform from Masabi US Ltd., is available only on four lines: Lowell, Fitchburg, Haverhill and Newbury/Rockport, but will be rolled out throughout the region later this month. Expect the Route 128 Station in Westwood to accept this soon.

Perhaps the subway lines or buses will be next to get mobile ticketing. If they do, how would you use the MBTA’s mobile ticketing system? Do you want it for the subway and buses? What about The Ride? Tell us in the comments.
