MTA Ticketing Goes Mobile With ‘Charm Pass’

A new mobile app launched by the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) brings ticketing into the modern age by allowing transit riders to purchase them through their cell phones.

The app has been billed as a way to help improve the rider experience by removing the need for cash in an increasingly cashless society and easing the boarding and transfer processes between transit services. From The Baltimore Sun:

The app sells local bus, light rail and metro subway one-way, one-day, seven-day and 31-day passes; MARC train one-way, five-day, seven-day and 31-day tickets; and one-way and 31-day passes for all Commuter Bus routes. It is available on Apple and Android phones and accepts payments via credit or debit cards and PayPal.
