Palmetto Breeze, a transit service that operates in five South Carolina counties, has launched a new mobile ticketing application for riders thanks to a partnership with Masabi, according to a press release.
The new app, BreezePass, is available for The Breeze, the recently launched Hilton Head Island public trolley service, as well as bus services Palmetto Breeze provides across all Lowcountry counties including Beaufort, Jasper, Allendale, Colleton and Hampton.
The app will offer an upgrade to current ticketing options by enabling riders to purchase and display tickets on their Android or Apple smartphones anytime, anywhere, according to the press release.
Passengers using BreezePass can pay for tickets using a credit or debit card, or via digital payment services such as Masterpass and Apple Pay. Tickets are displayed on-screen as a digital watermark and contain a dynamic and encrypted barcode.
Following purchase, passengers activate tickets and then show them to a driver when boarding. Mobile fares include one-way, round-trip, seven-day and 30-day passes. Once purchased, tickets are available offline so riders are never left without their ticket.
Palmetto Breeze is using the Justride Platform from Masabi. As part of the deployment, Justride will be using MasterCard Payment Gateway Services to enable simple, safe and secure in-app digital payments, according to the press release.
