Sprint Offers Mobile Ticketing For Vegas Monorail

Just in time for the CTIA show.

From Mobile Tech News Sprint offers mobile ticket for Vegas monorail

Sprint announced today a new service that will allow wireless customers to purchase tickets for the Las Vegas Monorail right from their wireless phones. Through mobile marketing, customers can avoid ticket-purchasing lines at the monorail terminals just by sending a text message to a short code.

Customers will be able to text the word RIDE to short code 99630 to receive a mobile ticket sent via text message right to their phone.

The passenger will then be able to take their mobile ticket to any of the monorail mobile ticketing kiosks powered by Swiftpass, one of the industry's leading mobile ticketing providers, and hold the ticket image in front of the kiosk scanner for the ticket to be dispensed.

All mobile tickets will be charged at the current monorail rate of $5 per single ride
