The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority decided Tuesday to keep its mobile ticketing app for at least three years.

RTA launched the RTA CLE app as a pilot program in July to give riders the ability to pay fares from their phones. That program proved to be successful, transit officials said.

“I expect now it will be become a permanent, additional enhancement,” RTA CEO Joe Calabrese said Tuesday after the meeting at which the RTA board approved continuing use of the app. “We see this as a trend in the future.”
