Two words can describe this next story, “ABOUT TIME” as the MTA has debuted its eTix mobile platform system wide on the LIRR. The platform enables customers on all LIRR lines to buy tickets on their phone & validate them for use before boarding the train. This will be a huge benefit when rushing for a train or if lines are too long to purchase a ticket before your train departs.
I can see myself using this app often as I tend to arrive at the very last second to catch my train. So anytime I can use it would be a win in my book. Hopefully people will not find a way to fraudulently use it as I am sure some are already working on ways how.
