Attention CTrail Shore Line East Passengers:
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) announced today the launch of CTrail eTix, a smartphone-based mobile ticketing application, for CTrail Shore Line East and CTrail Hartford Line customers.
With CTrail eTix, passengers can now purchase CTrail Shore Line East and CTrail Hartford Line tickets, with optional connecting service on New Haven Line (Metro-North) trains, using a single device in one transaction with a credit or debit card!
Once purchased, CTrail mobile tickets are then stored electronically in a secure CTrail eTix account. When ready to use a mobile ticket, the passenger simply opens the application and presses a button to activate the ticket. After the ticket is activated, passengers then show it to the train conductor from their smartphone.
The CTrail eTix app also allows CTrail passengers utilizing the Berlin and Wallingford stations to purchase station parking.
CTrail eTix is available for free download from Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store:
