Greater City Providence

MBTA introduces mTicket, but not for us (yet)

[box style=”alert”]Update 11/27: An update of the App was just pushed out on iOS which now includes the south side stations, including Providence.[/alert] [alert type=”muted”]Apparently, Wickford Junction is not yet included. MBTA says it will be added in the next update.[/alert]

The MBTA’s new mobile Commuter Rail ticketing app, mTicket, launched today, but only on Commuter Rail lines out of North Station.

We can expect the mTicket system to be available for trips on the Providence line starting later this month, and monthly passes for December will also be able to be purchased using mTicket. The MBTA has an FAQ to answer any questions about the system.

mTicket is available to download for free for the iPhone through iTunes and for Android devices through the Google Play store.

  • How awesome is that. I had wondered how they might integrate Charlie Tickets into the MBCR commuters. This is a cool way to get around it.

  • My mTicket App just updated on my iPhone and said that South Side tickets were part of the update. That should mean Providence. If anyone tries it out, let us know how it goes.
