Area Rapid Transit (DART) will extend operations of the GoPass® mobile
app to Fort Worth’s Trinity Metro for at least the next 36 months after the
board approved authorizing an agreement at their Jan. 14 meeting.
That agreement now goes to the Trinity Metro Board for their approval later this month.
The GoPass mobile app was introduced by DART in 2013. It is an all-in-one travel tool that gives customers real-time travel information, mobile ticketing and on-demand services through their phone for transit throughout North Texas.
GoPass has always included Trinity Metro, but this new agreement, with an additional 24 month option, will bring several new features to the scope of the platform.
features added will include real-time transit integration via NextBus, Via on-demand
service, Lyft integration, Uber integration and B-Cycle bike sharing.
DART is actively pursuing licensing GoPass to transit agencies like Trinity Metro. Doing so supports long-term funding for feature development, builds Mobility as a Service (MaaS) capabilities by combining transportation services from public and private providers, and benefits DART customers by adding a wider variety of choices and services through the platform.
