New technologies enable SARTA (OH) to go paperless in January 2023

  • Date: 08/04/2022

The Stark Regional Transit Authority (SARTA) has announced that it will no longer accept paper tickets and passes after 31 December 2022, as paper tickets will be replaces with more modern methods of payment that make it faster, easier and more convenient for riders to purchase and utilise bus transportation.

Eliminating paper tickets and passes is expected to result in less downtime, a reduction in overtime and maintenance costs, the elimination of supply chain paper delivery delays and increased operational efficiencies. The move is also in line with trends in the transport industry to move toward contactless payment options for riders.
