Using the New Mobile Ticket App!

Frequently Asked Questions 

1. Can I request a refund?

Paper transfers will not be issued.  However, each ride is valid for two hours in order to complete your trip.

5. Can I use my mobile ticket to transfer to a VCTC route or another transit system?
No.  Token Transit is currently only valid on GCT buses.  Mobile tickets are not a good option for passengers whose trip requires transferring onto another system, including VCTC or the Ojai Trolley.

6. Once activated, how long do I have to use my 1-Ride Ride Pass?
Single ride passes will expire two (2) hours from the time of activation.

7. How do I know if my pass is active?
Active passes will be displayed under "Passes in use", which immediately appears when the Token Transit app is opened. The pass will contain an image and a word of the day.  The word must be moving across the screen. This movement serves as confirmation to the Operator that the pass is valid.

8. Is there a record of past purchases?
Yes, you can view a log of your past actions by going to your Account Settings and selecting "History".  There will be a new entry every time you use a pass.

9. Can I have a receipt for my purchase?
You will need to include an email address when you register your account.  Receipts will be sent to the email address registered to your account.

10. What if my battery dies while my pass is active?
You are responsible for keeping your phone charged while using your pass.  Refunds will not be issued if your phone's battery dies while your pass is active.

11. What happens to my account if I lose my phone?
Your passes and payment information are linked to the account associated with your phone number.  They are not linked to your physical phone.  Logging in with your phone number on a new device will restore your previous pass and payment information.

12. Is my credit card information secure?
All personal and credit card information is securely stored, using Token Transit's encrypted Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant server.

13. I don't have a credit or debit card.  Can I pay with cash or check at the Customer Service Center and have my passes loaded there?
No. The only form of payment accepted on Token Transit is credit or debit card.  The Customer Service Center will not be accepting payments for mobile tickets.

14. I'm taking a group on a field trip using GCT fixed route service. Can I use the app to puchase mobile tickets rather than purchasing my tickets in advance at the Customer Service Center or one of the ticket outlets?
Yes.  You can purchase a 15-Ride pass, or multiple 1-Ride passes.  Just be sure to activate each individual ride using the Token Transit app.

15. What if Spanish is my preferred language. Is this app available in Spanish?
