Capital Metro app hits major milestone

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Yesterday, the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced that the mobile ticketing app, which the agency released in 2014, has sold more than 1 million tickets. The agency raked in $7 million in ticket sales from the CapMetro App in three years, and last year the app accounted for around 23 percent of its sales, or about $2.9 million. In a Tuesday press release, Dan Dawson, vice president of marketing and communications for Capital Metro, said the agency is working hard to give riders an experience comparable to the private sector. “Whether that’s through mobile apps, on-demand services or partnerships with up-and-coming mobility and tech firms, Capital Metro is committed to making the customer experience better,” Dawson said.
