Cashless mobile ticketing is integrated into the Vamos mobility app to help make journeys safer, easier and simpler across transit agencies serving San Joaquin County.
The San Joaquin Council of Governments (SJCG) has introduced cashless mobile ticketing that will help make using and paying for public transit safer and easier throughout San Joaquin County.
EZHub, launched in partnership with fare payments-as-a-service (FPaaS) provider, Masabi, is available in the Vamos mobility app from Kyyti and riders can use it to purchase tickets from any of the seven participating transit systems across California’s Central Valley.
The service will be available for riders on services delivered by: San Joaquin RTD; Manteca Transit; Tracer; eTrans; Altamont Corridor Express (Ace Rail); GrapeLine; and City of Ripon.
This will cover the regional bus and rail transit services throughout San Joaquin County and local bus transit service in the cities of Stockton, Lodi, Manteca, Ripon, Tracy, and Escalon. Vamos has integrated EZHub using Masabi’s Justride SDK, enabling transit ticketing from within the Vamos mobility app.
“The launch of EZHub represents the dawn of a new era for transit riders in San Joaquin County,” said Diane Nguyen, deputy director at SJCG. “From now on, not only will people be able to buy their tickets at any time, anywhere, but that ticket will take them wherever they want to go in San Joaquin County, saving the hassle of keeping track of multiple tickets, schedules and services across different agencies.”
“SJCG’s new regional fare payments system, EZHub, is a highly advanced solution to a technically complex problem. It seamlessly combines services from seven transit agencies. We are very happy to be the end-user app provider for this project,” added Pekka Möttö, CEO of Kyyti Group.
“We believe in making everyday commuting more convenient and more sustainable. Working with Masabi allows us to seamlessly combine passenger information with mobile ticketing over many operators, all within one app.”
“From now on, not only will people be able to buy their tickets at any time, anywhere, but that ticket will take them wherever they want to go in San Joaquin County”
