FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Vallejo, CA – Solano County Transit (SolTrans) announces its partnership with Transit as its official mobility app, joining Alameda-Contra Costa Transit (AC Transit), Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), Golden Gate Transit, Tri Delta Transit, and Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA) to provide a seamless, all-in-one app experience for users across the Bay Area.

“We want to make riding public transit as simple and stress-free as possible,” said David Block-Schachter, Chief Business Officer at Transit. “SolTrans passengers already rely on Transit to plan their next trip and track their ride in real-time. Adding the ability to buy transit fares gives riders everything they need in one official app.”

Upon launching the app, SolTrans riders see nearby options and departure times in big text and bright colors. Users can easily navigate the region, aided by accurate real-time ETAs, trip planning, step-by-step navigation, and crowdsourced real-time information with Transit’s GO feature.

Transit also supports mobile fare payment, in partnership with Token Transit (mobile fare app). This marks an important milestone: SolTrans customers have access to one, easy-to-use app for trip planning, real-time tracking, multimodal connections, and fare payment. Riders can purchase tickets in the Transit app by using the “Buy Ticket” button at the bottom of the home screen. Users can create a Transit Account and enter their credit card information to purchase a ticket. When boarding, riders display the activated pass to their driver for visual validation.

“Mobility services need to become universally accessible and useful to all,” said Pomi Tefera, Director of Operations at Token Transit. “Token Transit powers transit payments for over 100 cities across North America. In Transit, we’ve found a partner to help us make mobility services better through payments. We’re excited to grow a partnership that will let riders seamlessly purchase and use transit passes where they already plan their trips.”

By supporting riders to plan, track, and pay for their trips in one app, SolTrans is providing customers with reliable and intuitive service at every step of the journey, not just in our community, but across the Bay Area, as well.

Transit is available to download for iPhone and Android at www.transitapp.com.
