INDIANAPOLIS - IndyGo today announced the start of a new education campaign to teach riders more about MyKey, the transit agency’s upcoming fare system. The agency is moving into the next phase of testing the full system.
Once implemented, the MyKey system will allow riders to pay their fare using a mobile QR code or reloadable tap card.
IndyGo has created an educational video series called “MyKey University” to explain different elements of the fare system. The videos include information such as how to create an account, load money to a tap card, and use a ticket vending machine. These videos will be shared on IndyGo’s social media throughout December and posted on www.indygo.net/mykey/.
In addition, IndyGo will host a virtual training via Zoom and Facebook livestream at 12 p.m. on December 14. The public may register to attend the Zoom meeting by visiting www.indygo.net/mykey/ or tune in to the Facebook Live on December 14.
As part of this testing phase, riders may see ticket vending machines being upgraded at the Carson Transit Center and at Red Line stations.
Paper fare passes will continue to be accepted. Riders may still purchase paper fare passes onboard local buses and at partner locations and order paper passes online, over the phone, or at the Carson Transit Center Customer Service desk.
