So I could show off my iPhone ticket. This morning I became a beta tester for the Globe Sherpa app.
I haven’t used all the bells and whistles yet, but the core functionality is pretty straightforward. I purchased four 2-hour tickets with my credit card. The app ‘stores’ these for me. I then ‘used’ one of the tickets (pictured here) for a MAX trip to North Portland.
The app can sell any kind of ticket up to a 30-day pass, for any class of rider (Adult, Youth, Honored Citizen). No Streetcar-only fares yet (but it’s in the works), but of course you can use any TriMet fare on the Streetcar.
The app also has access to TransitTracker, a trip planner and maps and schedules, but I haven’t explored these in depth yet.
