DOVER, Del.- Riders of Delaware's DART buses can look forward to a more convenient payment option. With a new mobile payment app for its beach bus services, riders can pay fees from their devices. 

This is the first time Delaware Transit Corporation is trying this new payment option and it will be tested as a pilot program on the local beach bus services (201, 208, 215) in the eastern part of Sussex County through mid-September, the DTC said. 

"I'm excited about this pilot as it makes using public transit even easier. It's a great example of our focus on using innovation to improve customer service," said Delaware Secretary of Transportation Jennifer Cohan. 

The "Token Transit" app can be downloaded for free for users who have Apple and Android smart phones. Riders can purchase different types of fare cards from a single ride to a 30-Day pass. 

The beach bus services operate daily from approximately 7 AM to 2 AM  on seven routes serving beaches including Rehoboth, Dewey, Bethany, and Ocean City. The fares are $2 per trip and $.80 for Reduced Fare; a Daily Pass is $4.20; and new this year are the 7-Day Pass for  $18 and a 30-Day Pass for $65, all of which can be purchased on the Token Transit app. 

If successful, DTC plans to use mobile payment statewide next year. The app will go live starting Friday, June 30, right before the July 4th weekend.
