AN EASIER WAY TO PAY FOR TRANSIT
RTA Mobility Wallet
The Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan is developing a mobility wallet pilot program. The technology will allow users to pay for public transportation trips through a single shared system, which will connect with all major regional providers and various mobility services. The initial program will launch in 2024 with a small group of users that will be selected from groups that use United Way Southeast Michigan or Detroit at Work services. It will make it easier for riders to pay fares, improve integrated access, and drive decisions with collective data.
The mobility wallet will offer access to multiple public transportation options, including DDOT, SMART, QLINE, People Mover, MoGo, and at least one e-scooter company, as well as an option for AAATA. In addition, the mobility wallet pilot will explore future opportunities for fare-capping across multiple providers and subsidy programs—in efforts to save riders money and make transit more accessible.Click here to read more about the community benefits of the mobility wallet.
