Rock Region Metro, the local bus company, goes digital today with a cell phone app that may be used to purchase bus fare.


The app is free. To encourage people to try it Metro is offering a 50 percent discount on the first single in-app purchase through Nov. 10.

Purchases may be made with credit or debit cards. Passes also may be purchased at tokentransit.com and sent by text to smartphones. The app requires Internet access and a mobile data package, but Metro notes all buses and streetcars have free WiFi.
