Ride MCTS App
Getting around with the Ride MCTS App is as simple as A to B. Check out the tips and videos below.

Planning a Trip

From the app home screen, click on the "Where to" bar at the top of the screen and enter your starting and ending location. To make things easy, the app can use your current location and will remember recent searches. You can also add home and work locations for quick trip-planning.

In the Trip Planner, you can choose to leave right away, at a later time, or you can plan your trip by arrival time.

Once your locations are picked, hit the "Route" button in the upper right-hand corner and you’ll be shown various trip options. Click on any of the trips to see a map of the route. For more specific details like walking directions, bus stop locations and transfer opportunities, click on the lines in the upper right-hand corner. Tip, you can swipe left and right under “Trip Details” to see information for other trips.

Using Real-Time Bus Arrival Info

There are two ways to get Real-Time Bus info: by bus stop or on the Real-Time map.

  1. By Bus Stop – Choose the stop from your favorites or zoom in to find the stop you are looking for and click on it. The arrival times you see are real-time estimates.
  2. By Real-Time Map – From the home screen, click on the “All” button and choose your route to bring a map of all the buses on that route. Click on any bus to see Real-Time Arrival information.

Buying and Using Tickets

At the bottom of the home screen is the ticket and info drawer. Pull the drawer up and click on the "Purchase Ticket" button. Select a Passenger you are buying the ticket for and check out. The ticket immediately appears in your ticket drawer.

Currently we have two types of tickets.

  • $2 for 90 minutes of unlimited rides
  • $5 for 24 hours of unlimited rides

To use your ticket, open your ticket drawer and, as the bus is approaching, activate your ticket. When you board the bus, show your phone screen to the driver and enjoy your ride.

You can change your ticket preference by accessing the drop down menu screen. Once there, click on "Passengers." Select your passenger, then under "Ticket Type" you'll either see 90 Minute or 24 Hour Ticket Type. Just click that to change it. Go back and save. This is your ticket preference.
