Save Your Cash

Never awkwardly dig through your wallet again. This app allows you to purchase tickets in advance and save them to your wallet for future use. You can pre-load a bus card or upload saved payment methods from any account, so you're prepared for whenever you need it.


Special Events

Get to your event with ease by purchasing special service tickets right on the app. Store them on your device so they’re ready when the day comes. Whether it’s Vikings games, Gophers, State Fair, or Summer Jam, you can buy tickets in advance to make your outing stress-free.


Watch Your Bus

With the live arrival times feature, you can see where your bus is during its route in real-time. No more missing the bus due to ‘guesstimations’ and slow-to-update times. You can now synchronize your route and watch your bus travel up to the last minute so you can be ready when it arrives.


Plan Your Trip

The trip planning tool allows you to plan your upcoming route. Now, you can view all available routes to your destination, and plan out the one that works best for you. Save your frequently used routes and passes to your favorites folder so you can easily plan outings and upload tickets effortlessly!


Connect Rides

You can now schedule, book, and pay for Connect Rides in our app. These trips can be booked up to 1 hour early. We know not everything always goes to plan, so the app also allows you to cancel rides and rebook your trip if needed.


Feel Supported

We are dedicated to the wellness and safety of our riders; that’s why we are taking proactive measures to ensure you feel secure when traveling. Our ’See Something, Say Something’ feature will be easy to access and offer a quick way to discreetly report any disturbances or questionable behavior you witness so we can swiftly and efficiently resolve these issues. You can also use this feature to leave positive comments and experiences.
