Token Transit

Token Transit, Inc.

Ditch the dollar. Token Transit allows you to store fares and passes on your phone. And no more last minute trips to pick up the kids because they don't have bus fare or lost their school I.D. Token Transit allows you to send fares to family members' accounts from your desktop.


University of Illinois

If you’re on campus and use the bus, there’s an app for that! Not only can the Illinois app plan your next MTD trip and provide real-time updates for departure times, it also has a virtual bus pass for current University of Illinois students, faculty, and staff.
