California's SolTrans (Solano County Transit) has chosen Transit as its official mobility app in a move that allows riders track and pay for fares. 

SolTrans provides public transportation service to the southern Solano County cities of Vallejo and Benicia. 

David Block-Schachter, chief business officer at Transit, says: “We want to make riding public transit as simple and stress-free as possible. 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.”

SolTrans riders can see nearby options and departure times in big text and bright colours. They can 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 app, providing customers with access to a solution for trip planning, real-time tracking, multimodal connections and fare payment. 

Users can create a Transit Account and enter their credit card information to purchase a ticket. When boarding, they display the activated pass to their driver for validation.

Pomi Tefera, director of operations at Token Transit, says: “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.”
