Caltrain launched its “Mobile” official ticketing application that allows passengers to purchase and activate tickets from their smart phone devices. Caltrain Mobile will offer One-Way, Day Pass and Zone Upgrade digital tickets for adults and passengers who qualify for discounted fare.
Ticket prices are the same as paper tickets and there are no additional fees. Tickets for multiple people can be purchased and stored on a single phone. Tickets are activated immediately upon purchase and the rules are the same as those for the ticket machines. The app includes a Trip Tools option that allows riders to access the Caltrain website for schedules and link up with the MuniMobile and VTA EZFare ticketing apps. There’s also a My Account section where passengers can manage their stored information, email address, adjust on-file billing methods and view transaction history.
Caltrain Mobile was designed by moovel North America, LLC, who is also the mobile ticketing provider for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority. Caltrain Mobile can run on iOS and Android operating systems and will accept major credit and debit cards.
Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy.
