Purchase Transit fare tickets with your smartphone
January 24, 2017 — Transportation and Public Works
The Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) announces the launch of a new, state-of-the-art mobile app for transit riders: EASY Pay. The application will allow passengers to purchase a fare ticket via their smartphone and activate it in order to ride the Metrobus or tap into Metrorail stations at the barcode reader-equipped fare gate.
Riders can download the free mobile application via their smartphone by searching “EASY Pay Miami” in the App Store or Google Play. During this first stage of the year-long project, users will only be able to purchase a 1-Day Pass ($5.65). More features will be added next year.
This new mobile ticketing feature is only one component of an infrastructure update to our fare collection system. Eventually, the full upgrade will enable Miami-Dade Transit to communicate with other transportation agencies — such as Broward County Transit, TriRail, or even ride-share and bike-share companies — for more seamless travel countywide.
The modernization also includes a cloud-based system that will allow your mobile device to become a digital EASY Card, thus offering another option to riders in addition to paper tickets and plastic cards. Just tap and ride.
