The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has launched its "UTA GoRide" mobile ticketing app, which enables riders to purchase light-rail, streetcar and bus fares on their smartphones.

The app enables riders to buy single-ride fares or day passes for themselves or other passengers. GoRide isn't yet available on UTA's FrontRunner commuter-rail routes.

Fares can be purchased in advance or activated once riders are ready to board their bus or train, UTA officials said in a press release.

On Sept. 28, the agency held a kickoff event for the app at its Murray Central TRAX light-rail station.

UTA is one of the latest agencies to roll out a mobile ticketing app. To learn about other passenger railroads' mobile fare apps, read this article from Progressive Railroading's January issue.
