“I am very proud that we were selected by OCTA to be their mobile ticketing partner,” said Nat Parker, CEO of GlobeSherpa. “GlobeSherpa strives to be the most innovative provider of mobile ticketing software and we look forward to providing OCTA riders with tickets on their mobile devices at the click of a button.”

 GlobeSherpa, a leading provider of secure mobile ticketing and payment software, is pleased to announce that the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), Orange County’s primary transportation agency, has selected GlobeSherpa to provide a complete, end-to-end mobile phone ticketing software system for OCTA riders.  When the new ticket system launches, OCTA customers will be able to purchase and use OCTA tickets with just a few clicks on their smartphone.
 
“I am very proud that we were selected by OCTA to be their mobile ticketing partner,” said Nat Parker, CEO of GlobeSherpa. “GlobeSherpa strives to be the most innovative provider of mobile ticketing software and we look forward to providing OCTA riders with tickets on their mobile devices at the click of a button.”
 
GlobeSherpa was chosen over several other qualified vendors and after a lengthy competitive procurement and evaluation process.
 
OCTA will be using GlobeSherpa’s end-to-end mobile ticketing and fare collection platform that includes:

  • A Rider Application and eCommerce Website for fast purchase and easy use of mobile tickets by OCTA riders
  • A Fare Inspector Application to quickly authenticate and verify tickets
  • GlobeSherpa’s sophisticated Transaction & Operations Management System (TOMS) back-office analytics software that allows OCTA operations staff to manage the system through an easy-to-use, yet robust, cloud-based dashboard.

 
With GlobeSherpa’s secure, proven mobile ticketing system, OCTA will be able to deliver industry-leading innovation to its riders at a fraction of the cost of traditional fare collection technology, improve operations through real-time reporting and geo-location data, and make happier riders by allowing them to purchase OCTA fares anywhere, anytime.
 
The OCTA mobile ticketing app will be available for download from an app store at no cost. The system is expected to become generally available late this year.
