Protecting Fare Collection Systems from Natural Disasters

2017 Hurricanes No Match for Genfare’s Disaster Preparedness Team
Mobile Payments for All Size Agencies Developed by Bytemark, the MyDART app lets Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority riders use their smartphones to pay for their bus fare. By using the MyDART app, these riders no longer have to keep track of a printed pass and can save time by purchasing bus passes anywhere, anytime on their smartphone. When DART installs new fareboxes in summer 2018, riders will be able to scan the MyDART app at the farebox instead of showing activated passes to the bus operator. In the future, a trip planner and real-time bus arrival information will be available in the MyDART app.
