Riding Bustang is Even Easier with Mobile-Ticketing App

June 22, 2018 - New payment options offer easy, secure and fast ways to pay


DENVER—Bustang® riders now have new options to pay for tickets when using the Justride Bustang mTicketing app. The addition of the Masterpass and Apple Pay digital payment services allows customers to purchase tickets with just a tap, eliminating the need to type in any credit card numbers, billing information or security codes to complete a transaction.

To use Masterpass or Apple Pay on the Bustang mTicketing app, simply select the fare you wish to purchase, choose the stored payment card of your choice, and complete the payment by using either Masterpass checkout or the Touch or Face ID features for Apple Pay. The app allows riders to purchase single-ride, 10-ride, 20-ride or 40-ride passes, and view schedules and fares. It is available for download from Google Play and the Apple App Store.

Masabi, the global leader in mobile-ticketing and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) -based fare collection, developed the app.

"Masabi was founded with the goal of making transit ticketing and payments as quick and painless as possible—simplifying the process for riders," said Masabi CEO Brian Zanghi. "The addition of these mobile payment solutions from Mastercard and Apple into the Bustang app will help make riding the bus in Colorado even easier."

Bustang, operated for CDOT by Ace Express of Golden, offers daily coach service through the I-70 corridor between Glenwood Springs and Denver (Grand Junction route coming soon) and along I-25 between Fort Collins and Colorado Springs. Bustang's climate-controlled coaches are equipped with WiFi access, USB outlets and restrooms.
