About ReadyPass

ReadyPass is the smart bus upgrade every city deserves — and the first that any can access. We’re helping create smart and simple transit for passengers, bus drivers, and the city.

Smart transit shouldn’t be just for massive metropolises. We’re a small team based in a small city, working hard to make transit better for everyone.

Our mission is to make riding the bus easier than driving a car. That means using advancing technology as a tool to enhance the service of existing public transit infrastructure; removing barriers to the growth of public transit in North America; and delivering user-centric features that are accessible to all riders.
