Buffalo Metro Bus and Rail Systems adding Mobil Tickets
This is what you have to do to get your Mobile ticket situation together, you will have to download the NFTA app, called the MetGo app and this app will allow you to buy bus/rail passes on your phone, eliminating the need to find ticket machines or carry cash.
You will be able to activate your pass (for rail this must be done above ground), once the ticket is active it has a specific expiration time, then simply show the driver or ticket inspector the ticket on their phone and you good to go.
According to the NFTA, press release the process is expected to begin in March 2019 with a full launch of passes being accepted on bus and rail beginning in April 2019.
Available for purchase through the app will be:
- Single ride (bus)
- Single ride (rail)
- Round trip (rail)
- Day pass (all modes)
- Configurable event passes
This is a great idea and will be very convenient. Just make sure you phone doesn't die.
