All BCT buses will be retrofitted by September 2018 with
mobile-friendly fareboxes. The new fareboxes will make travel easier and more
convenient for customers who will eventually be able to purchase a bus pass using
their smartphone. The new fareboxes can process various forms of payments
including mobile tickets, smart cards, and cash. Customers will also be able to
connect with all South Florida Transportation systems.
This summer, we added 30 new MCI Commuter Coaches to our fleet. The new buses are being integrated into the Express Bus Service to improve your transit experience. Other buses will be used, on a limited bases, for the Express Service, to ensure we get you where you’re going, when one of the new MCI Commuter Coaches is scheduled for maintenance. BCT continues to improve services to meet the needs of our customers and the growing demand for public transportation. If you’re an Express Bus Service customer, we’d like to hear from you about your experience on the new MCI Commuter Coaches. Email us at BCTMarketing@Broward.org.
