** NOTE: To purchase using Token Transit you must switch the Rider Type to Emergency. This pass is open to all users and does not require an ID to redeem. The pass is labeled ID Required due to app functionality. The pass may still be validated using the touchless hardware validator.
Emergency passes are activated upon purchase.
LANTA has partnered with Token Transit to bring mobile ticketing to the Lehigh Valley. Mobile ticketing is when customers can order, pay for, obtain and/or validate tickets using mobile phones, without the need of a physical ticket .
|1. Download: “Token Transit” from Google Play (Android) or the App Store (iPhone). You can also text “TOKEN” to 41411 to receive a download link.
||2. Create: an account with your phone number. (Note: Provide a email address to receive receipts for purchases.)||3. Purchase: Select a rider fare type, then select the pass type you wish to purchase.||4. Activate: When you are ready to ride, tap your pass to activate. All passes are stored in your Token Transit account.|
|5. Ride: As you board the bus, briefly hold your phone near the Token validator on the fare box. When it flashes green you are ready to board!|
There are two way to utilize mobile ticketing on LANtaBus.
One way is through the traditional mobile ticketing using the validator that is attached to the fare box. Another way is by a visual ticket. Visual ticketing is only used when traditional mobile ticketing fails. On the bottom of the screen there will be a button that says “Not working? Show visual ticket.” Press this button to show the visual ticket on the screen and show it to the bus operator.
Note: Cell phone must have Bluetooth and Location data enabled for Token Transit. Older model/low performing androids may not be compatible.
