PARTA rolls out its new fare collection system Monday, July 10. Over the past several weeks PARTA hosted information sessions to answer questions, help riders sign up for EZfare, and distributed new fare cards in advance of the launch. On July 10 riders will need to use the EZfare app on their smartphone, a new smart card, or exact change to ride fixed route buses. Riders can sign up for EZfare online or download the EZfare app from the Google Play or Apple App stores. New smart cards are available at the Kent Central Gateway Transit Center or the PARTA administration office.
PARTA is pleased to announce that our new bus tracking mobile app is now live. Passengers can download Passio GO! to their smartphones to view arrival times and bus locations in real-time. The app is a free download from the Google Play or Apple App Store. With this technology upgrade, PARTA bus riders can access information about individual routes, schedules, and stops. Riders can also set bus arrival alerts and tag favorites, saving time and reducing wait times at bus stops. Additional alerts for route changes or delays serve to keep all riders informed.
