Chatham Area Transit riders will be able to buy digital bus tickets and passes on their smart phones beginning in March.CAT has partnered with Token Transit to launce the mobile ticketing app. This service will allow riders the ability to go cashless and reduce contact when boarding CAT buses. To ride, they will simply show the bus operator the ticket displayed on their smart phone instead of sticking a pass or cash into the fare box. Digital tickets are not activated until the customer taps the fare on their phone. Once activated passengers and operators will see the CAT logo with a pulsating circle around it and the current time. The pulsating circle indicates to the bus operator that the pass is valid. Customers should not activate the pass until they are ready to board the vehicle for the first time. Customers will still be able to purchase paper tickets on the bus and at the Joe Murray Rivers Jr Intermodal Transit Center. In addition, customers still have the ability to purchase tickets online at catchacat.org and have them mailed to their homes.
