Mobile tickets application “Mobile Tickets App” refers to RTD's mobile tickeing application, on an iOS or Android device. "Third-party Application" refers to RTD-authorized third-party mobility applications, on an iOS or Android device. Mobile Ticket or “mTicket” refer to a type of ticket or pass which is purchased through the RTD Mobile Tickets App or Third-party Application valid for use on RTD bus and rail service, except Access-a-Ride and Special Services. "Stored Value" refers to funds loaded onto the RTD Mobile Tickets application. The "Stored Value Account" is part of the customer account in RTD's Mobile Tickets application. Customers can use these pre-loaded funds as a payment method when purchasing mTickets. Stored Value funds are not valid for travel on RTD services; the customer has to purchase and activate a mTicket in order to pay the fare. The security of your mobile phone or mTicket is your responsibility.
We recommend that you create a customer account for your protection. In the event that your mobile phone is lost or stolen, you will be able to migrate unused, unexpired tickets as well as any unused balance on a Stored Value Account to your new device when logging into your customer account on the new device. RTD will not provide a duplicate or replacement ticket for used or expired mTickets. Replacement for stolen or damaged tickets may be granted if proof of the theft or evidence of the damage is provided. RTD will not provide a duplicate or replacement tickets for mTickets used without your permission and will not replenish funds in a Stored Value Account that were used without your permission by a person to whom you have given access to your mobile device or customer account. Your mTicket must be activated prior to boarding an RTD revenue vehicle and must be displayed clearly on a mobile phone screen to the operator every time you board an RTD revenue vehicle, or when requested by a fare inspector or police officer. The mTicket must be retained during your entire trip on RTD revenue vehicles. Failure to show an active, valid ticket is considered fare evasion and is subject to enforcement actions according to RTD policy and local and state laws.
If the mTicket has been damaged or is not readable in any way, it becomes invalid, and a new one must be purchased. If you delete the RTD Mobile Tickets App, you will also delete your mTickets from your device. If you reinstall the RTD Mobile Tickets App on the same device it was deleted from, and you log into your account, your tickets will be downloaded to the device. You cannot print mTickets or transfer tickets to other individuals. However, you may purchase and activate multiple tickets on the same mobile device for a group riding together. You will have to display an active, valid mTicket for each member of your group to the operator every time you board an RTD revenue vehicle, or when requested by a fare inspector or police officer.
Your RTD mTicket or Stored Value will be sold to you via RTD's mobile ticketing partner, Masabi. The mTicket itself creates a contract between you and RTD for the provision of the transport services that the mTicket allows you to use. It is RTD that provides these services to you under the mTicket, and in no event will Masabi, or any third-party mobile app ticket seller, be responsible for, or have any liability to you, in relation to these services or their availability or performance (including your use or access to any RTD revenue vehicle, the RTD network, your use of any services provided under your mTicket, or for your use of the RTD Mobile Tickets App).
