The Future of Commuting
Coming to a smartphone near you in 2015 is an app designed to make commuting easier than you could imagine. The app, made for Metro-North and LIRR trains will allow you to bypass long ticket lines and purchase through your phone or tablet instead. Price stays the same, and all you have to do is show it to the conductor.
The free app comes with no service charge and is being created by the London and New York-based app company Masabi. Masabi already sells online tickets for the Boston transit system and Nassau Country buses, with about 25% of Boston commuters using the app.
The MTA board has approved $2 million to begin the project with the hope of launching in 2015. To learn more, visit here.
