All Aboard – Using Your Smart Phone

New Jersey Transit kicks off a pilot program today that allows some rail passengers to transform their smart phones into train tickets.

Travelers who use the Pascack Valley line can now download a new app and buy one-way tickets and monthly passes on their phones.

“Giving customers the ability to purchase and display rail tickets right from their phones will make traveling on NJ Transit trains even more convenient for the customers who use our system every day,” said Department of Transportation Commissioner and NJ Transit Board Chairman Jim Simpson.  “Although the initial pilot is for our Pascack Valley and Meadowlands Rail Line customers, our ultimate goal is to put this technology into the hands of all of our rail customers.”

The head of NJ Transit agrees.  “We are testing mobile ticketing as part of NJ Transit’s ongoing effort to tap into the latest technology to improve the overall experience for our customers,” said NJT Executive Director Jim Weinstein.

The MyTix app is now available for free download on any web-enabled iOS or Android operating system, via the App Store for iOS devices and the Google Play Store for Android devices. MyTix allows customers to purchase tickets on their mobile devices for travel on the Pascack Valley Line, as well as between Penn Station New York and the Meadowlands Rail Station for special events.

Following a three-month pilot program on the Pascack Valley Line, NJ Transit will evaluate MyTix and make any needed adjustments before expanding the program to additional lines, with the goal of a full systemwide rail rollout by the end of the year.
