Transit mobile ticketing and fare collection company Masabi this week announced that Transit, a popular mobile app that shows real-time transit information, will integrate its SDK into the app to enable users to browse fare types, make payments, and receive mobile tickets.
Masabi said in a press release that once an SDK agreement is struck with a transit agency, tickets will be made available to buy, store and use inside of Transit’s app.
The Justride SDK enables Transit to request fare types, make payments, and deliver visual and barcode tickets to a rider through a ticket wallet. The wallet communicates with Masabi servers to understand complex fare tables and manage the ticket lifecycle and security, according to the release.
Agencies using the SDK will also have access to the Justride Hub, from where they can access a wealth of back office data including real-time sales, usage and validation information and an extensive customer services interface, according to the release.
“The smartphone continues to revolutionize the passenger’s relationship with public transport and applications such as Transit are characteristic of this shift,” Brian Zanghi, Masabi’s CEO, said in the release. “With the addition of Masabi’s mobile ticketing to their app, Transit’s users will be able to plan and execute their journey from a single interface helping make riding public transit more accessible and seamless.”
