MTA, Masabi bringing mobile ticketing to New York train services

The Metropolitan Transit Authority Board has signed a deal with Masabi to introduce a digital ticketing system to the New York train system. Initially rolling out for Metro-North Railroad and Long Island Rail Road customers, passengers will be able to buy and display tickets on their smartphone or tablet. While the timing of the system's launch has not been revealed by the MTA, Masabi CEO Ben Whitaker advised to the Wall Street Journal that "planning, training, and testing" with the rail lines means the app could be a few months away from release.
