LOOK: Laval testing mobile app to pay for bus fares

The transit authority in Laval is testing out a new mobile system to pay for bus fares using a cellphone app

Employees are currently testing the new app, which will be called STL billets and available for both apple and android devices. Everyday users may be included in the second phase of the pilot project later this year.

The app allows users to pay for fares on their phones, then scan the corresponding QR code on a STL bus to validate them.

The results of the beta testing will be shared with the RTM regional transit authority and other public transport systems in Quebec including Montreal's STM.
