New York, NY (PRWEB) May 25, 2012
Portable Fare Systems, LLC today announced the launch of Portafare™, a mobile ticketing app, on the Hampton Jitney, just in time for Memorial Day Weekend. The launch will provide Hampton Jitney passengers with an easier way to manage the purchase and display of tickets. Currently available for the iOS, the free app enables an iPhone® user to purchase and display a valid ticket for boarding a Hampton Jitney bus.
“Our company was born from the frustration of missing a connection while waiting on line to buy a ticket ,” said Richard Gallo, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Portable Fare Systems. “We are thrilled to launch with as forward-looking a partner as the Hampton Jitney. We’ve built a robust, secure, and highly scalable ticketing platform to meet the needs of carriers running large and complex transit systems while providing smartphone users with a new simple app to manage all of their surface transportation tickets.”
Portafare™ is a free mobile app that allows commuters to purchase and manage their bus and train tickets directly on their mobile devices, and helps transit operators authenticate and collect electronic tickets with minimal infrastructure investment.
“We are pleased to be the launch partner for Portafare™ ,” said Dave Mankoff Vice President of Hampton Jitney. “Many of our riders are technologically sophisticated, time constrained, and use the Hampton Jitney to reduce the stress of busy work lives. We think Portafare™ will prove to be a valuable ticketing tool since it increases the level of service and convenience we can provide at no additional cost to our riders.”
Portafare™ is now available for free download from the Apple App Store, and will soon be available for Android and Blackberry® devices as well.
