Contactless fare collection system provider Modeshift has embarked on a partnership and the launch of a new digital fare collection system with Marin Airporter, which provides Marin County with airport shuttle services to and from San Francisco International Airport (SFO).
Modeshift planned, designed and implemented the new Marin Airporter app and online system, which has been created to enable users to plan, track and pay for a ride quickly and easily. The digital solution will also provide valuable data insights to Marin Airporter and simplify back-end operations so the local service can continue to provide effective transit options for those commuting to and from SFO.
“Using Modeshift’s technology, Marin Airporter users will experience an intelligent transport system that simplifies the process of managing travel,” said Miroslav Katsarov, CEO of Modeshift. “The new service streamlines the steps for customers to plan and pay for a ticket with a few clicks on a mobile or online device and enables them to track their ride on the mobile app for smart trip planning.”
Features of the Marin Airporter mobile app and online system include mobile ticketing, a web portal, data collection and point of sale and validation systems.
Modeshift’s technology means that Marin Airporter passengers can purchase single-ride and 30-ride passes through the new app and website, which generates a unique QR code for each fare. Users can redeem this fare by scanning their tickets at electronic validators installed on the Marin Airporter shuttle fleet. The app is available to download in both Apple and Google Play Stores.
