David Block-Schachter said that in addition to mobile tariff payment, the transit app now also offers trip planning, real-time tracking, service alerts and connections to first-mile / last-mile services.

“We’re making driving on public transport as easy and stress-free as possible,” says Block-Schachter, Chief Business Officer at Transit in Montreal.

“Saskatoon passengers already rely on Transit to plan their next trip and follow their journey in real time. By integrating mobile TGo ticketing in Transit, Saskatoon Transit offers its passengers everything they need in one place. “

McDonald said it is also another step forward as the city moves towards Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).

“While we’re working towards BRT, people want to use an app to find out where their bus is right now. The local transport app also shows you where your buses are, ”he said.

“So it’s one of those things that actually move people forward.”

The TGo and Transit apps are both available on Google Play and the App Store.
