T-CETRA, one of the largest PIN providers in the pre-paid wireless industry has launched a program with the Greater Dayton Mass Transit system to enable cash payments for bus passes at participating T-CETRA retailers (ie Wireless Dealers) in the Dayton area. Using the VidaPay web portal, riders can now pay cash to load bus pass values to their RTA Mobile Tapp Pay accounts. This method incurs no fees to the rider – an important distinction from pre-paid debit card payments which often charge monthly and transactional fees to the user.
Tapp Pay mobile is part of RTA’s new contactless payment system, available by downloading the free Transit app on the Google or Apple App store. The Greater Dayton RTA has installed electronic payment readers onboard all vehicles, enabling customers to scan mobile passes from their Tapp Pay account, furthering RTA’s contactless payment experience.
Since the onset of the pandemic, both T-CETRA and the Greater Dayton RTA have worked diligently to maintain a safe experience for their retailers and customers. By augmenting access to Tapp Pay mobile payments to cash paying customers, both partners aim to reduce the amount of daily physical interactions with on-board bus payment equipment and provide a contactless and safe experience for riders.
