Your Phone Is Now Your Bus Pass!

The Token Transit app allows Tricounty Link customers to purchase bus passes with their smartphones, which can then be used as electronic tickets to board buses. Customers will need to download the Token Transit App to use the mobile pay option.

To ride, the customer simply shows their phone to the driver as they board the bus instead of sticking a pass or cash into the farebox.

3. Activate
