UTA now offering mobile ticketing in app
SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Transit Authority is trying to make planning your commute much easier with mobile ticketing.
UTA customers can now make their way to the UTA app for easy access. You can plan your trip, use real-time tracking and now access fare payment.
More specifically, riders simply show the activated ticket on their phone to a UTA operator or fare inspector.
“Mobile ticketing integration is the first step towards UTA’s vision of a fully integrated Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solution in one app for our customers,” said UTA’s Customer Experience Manager GJ LaBonty in a press release. “That vision includes using not just transit but taking advantage of third-party services to complete the first/last mile connection of a transit journey.”
More so, according to the Public Transportation Ridership Report, in 2022 about 100,300 Utahns rode UTA per weekday.
“We want to make riding public transit as simple and stress-free as possible, and this solution helps do that,” said Chief Business Ofﬁcer at Transit David Block-Schachter in a press release.
