The new Tap & Go! RTS Fast Pass is a fare card that will allow customers to simply tap it on the fare box when boarding to pay, making public transit easier for those that use it.
When the fare is accepted, the fare box will beep or you will hear “fare deducted” to know you have successfully paid.
RTS CEO Bill Carpenter says the new technology lays the groundwork for improved fare payment options in the future such as fare boxes that accept credit cards and mobile payment.
Tap & Go! passes are available for purchase online at myRTS.com, or one of the ticket vending machines at the RTS Transit Center or the RTS Administration Building.
For more information, RTS has created a short video on their website to show how easy it is to purchase, use and check the balance of the new pass.
