Capital Metro, the regional public transportation provider of central Texas, worked with mobile ticketing pioneer Bytemark to launch the new CapMetro app, which allows commuters in Austin to buy and store transit passes using their mobile devices. The free app is available for Android, iOS, and Windows devices. Commuters simply download the app and create a user account. Users can buy tickets, view real-time schedules, plan trips, view routes, or check out the next bus near their location. The citywide mobile ticketing application aims to help rejuvenate the transit industry. The program also helps decrease the use of paper in the city.
