Key Takeaway:

The transit agency serving Las Vegas and the surrounding region is the first in the U.S. to enable customers to pay fares for public transit and bike rental from the same account in a third-party trip-planning app, though mobile ticketing in these apps are slow to take off.

Organizations Mentioned:

• RTC of So. Nev.
• Transit app
• Uber
