Hazleton Public Transit and Modeshift Partner to Improve Rider Experience with New Mobile Ticketing Platform
Modeshift, a leading contactless fare collection system provider, announced today a partnership with Hazleton Public Transit (HPT), which services Hazleton, PA and its surrounding areas, to launch a new digital fare and data collection platform.
Through the partnership, Modeshift has worked closely with HPT to plan, design and implement the mobile ticketing system, which will significantly increase ease of use for riders. The digital platform streamlines the ticketing process by offering riders an option to request and pay for a ticket with just a few clicks on a mobile device. Additionally, Modeshift's data fare collection integration will provide HPT with valuable insights to help optimize transit routes, while improving accessibility for riders.
"We're excited to launch our new mobile ticketing platform in partnership with Modeshift to provide our communitywith a safer, more efficient public transit experience," said Ralph Sharp, director for HPT. "Our buses serve a diverse group of community members and visitors, each with individual needs. With this new digital solution, we can more efficiently meet the needs of our riders by optimizing our routes and timetables."
Hazleton Public Transit is the latest PA-based transit agency to partner with Modeshift to modernize fare and data collection infrastructure. Most recently, Modeshift partnered with Luzerne County Transportation Authority and continues to see success across the state.
"We're thrilled to be working with the team at Hazleton Public Transit to help optimize their route planning and improve the overall rider experience," said Miroslav Katsarov, CEO of Modeshift. "With our data collection platform, HPT will now have greater insight into the needs of its riders and can ultimately use this data to make routes more efficient throughout Hazleton."
