Jacksonville, FL – The Jacksonville Transportation Authority has launched the MyJTA app, a mobile solution for JTA bus fare purchases. The MyJTA app is powered by Passport, the industry leading mobile payments provider for transit and parking. With My JTA, riders can plan their trip, track JTA transit, and pay for their bus pass all within the app.
The MyJTA app gives riders the convenience of planning their transit journey in a way that works best with their schedule. Users can even track the various transit systems in order to determine the most efficient path to their destination. Riders are able to pay for their transit fares directly through their secure My JTA account using their credit card information. MyJTA users can then use their mobile ticket to board the bus or store their ticket for later use with the app’s Ticket Manager feature.
“The Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) is on the forefront of bringing the latest technology to our customers to increase their convenience and satisfaction as they travel throughout our City,” said Kenyatta Lee, Senior Manager of Technology and Innovation at the Jacksonville Transportation Authority. “Customers are now able to get on board, plan, track, and pay using the MyJTA convenient user-friendly application.
