The Butler Transit Authority is pleased to announce a new fare paying method for commuters…mobile ticketing. BTA has partnered with Token Transit to offer a simpler, more convenient way to pay bus fares.
Commuters can purchase their bus passes anywhere, at any time on their mobile device. Mobile ticketing is available in just four simple steps.
1. Download: Install “Token Transit” from Google Play (android) or the App Store (iOS). Commuters can also text TOKEN to 41411 to receive a download link.
2. Purchase: Select a Butler Transit Authority fare type (single ride, 15 Trip Pass or 31 Trip Pass).
3. Activate: When a passenger is ready to ride, they simply tap their pass to activate it. The active trip is valid for 30 minutes from the time of activation. All passes are stored in their Token Transit account.
4. Ride: As the passenger boards the bus, they show the driver their digital ticket.
