0

The Woodlands Township will launch a mobile ticketing app for riders of The Woodlands Express Park and Ride, Aug. 13.

The Woodlands Express Park and Ride service provides an alternate commute option between The Woodlands and Houston, with destinations including the Texas Medical Center, Greenway Plaza and the central business district of Houston. The service runs Mon.-Fri., excluding holidays, and will also offer reverse commuting this year.

The new app will allow riders to purchase tickets via smartphone, eliminating the need for paper tickets. Riders can purchase their tickets using a credit or debit card, or via digital payment services such as Masterpass and Apple Pay, and display their ticket to the driver when boarding the bus.

“This new service will significantly simplify and improve the overall transit experience of our riders,” The Woodlands Township Chairman Gordy Bunch said in a statement. “We are excited to be deploying this new mobile ticketing app in partnership with Masabi, the app developer, and look forward to the response from our riders.”

Riders can purchase both round-trip tickets as well as ticket books, which give riders 20 round-trip tickets, through the app.

The new app will be available for free download in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, beginning Aug. 13.
