Speaking of RTA and the good its doing: It occurred to us that we hadn't yet notified our readers of an important development on the RTA mobile app. It now offers single-trip fares.

For $2.50, you can purchase your single-trip ticket on your mobile device. As with the other mobile tickets, you present your screen to fare-enforcement officers, vehicle operators, or ticket workers at Tower City once your ticket has been activated. For the single-trip fare, the pass is active for one hour after purchase.

When the mobile app was introduced, it offered daily, weekly and monthly options. But the single-trip fare is a critical addition for those with irregular travel needs and schedules. (Also, if you're merely traveling there and back — to see a movie, say, or to catch a Tribe game — buying two $2.50 single-trip tickets saves you $0.50. The alternative is a $5.50 all-day pass.)

Also effective Jan. 1, Paratransit customers can now buy 1-Ride, Paratransit All-Day Passes, Paratransit 7-Day Passes and Paratransit Monthly Passes.

The mobile ticketing app — RTA CLE — is free and available for iOS and Android.
