The LIRR and the Metro-North will ask the MTA Board Wednesday to award a
$2 million contract to Masabi to develop and implement a mobile
ticketing system for the LIRR. This new system will allow LIRR and Metro-North passengers to purchase
and display tickets on their mobile phones while onboard trains, much
like NJTransit's MyTix system.
The MTA will award the contract to
Masabi, LLC Wednesday. Masabi is the same company that developed the
mTicket system for MBCR is Boston, and is the same company that is
currently putting the finishing touches on the mobile ticketing system
for NICE Bus.
