SAN FRANCISCO — Transit managers at Caltrain are moving forward with plans to develop a new mobile ticketing app for use on the agency’s commuter rail system. Board members recently approved a contract in excess of $643,000 for creators at moovel Group, a mobile technology company, to design and implement the new fare technology.
By this summer, passengers will be able to use their smartphones for mobile ticketing across the Caltrain system. The fare system will include one-way, day pass and zone upgrade fare capabilities.
The mobile app will be compatible on both iOS and Android platforms and will have the ability to accept major credit and debit cards.
