Do I need to be connected?
An Internet connection is required to purchase tickets, but you can use/activate your tickets offline.

What if my battery dies?
Just like with paper tickets, you're responsible for making sure you have a valid fare at all times, so be sure to plan ahead!


• Don't uninstall the LA Mobile app or erase your phone without transferring your unused tickets first. Your tickets are stored on your phone (which makes it possible to use them without an Internet connection), so uninstalling the app can permanently erase your tickets!

• Activate your ticket when you see your bus approaching. Display your ticket to the bus driver and tap the ticket screen to validate using Lights On feature.

• Watch your battery level... Just like with paper tickets, you're responsible for making sure you have a valid fare at all times.

• We suggest you create an account before purchasing tickets, as this is the only way you can transfer your unused tickets if you get a new phone. (Note: Only unused tickets can be transferred. Use up any activated tickets before switching phones).


Android versions 2.3.3+

• A wi-fi or cell connection is necessary to purchase tickets, but not to use them.

The older version of this app was so much better! I recently upgraded my phone and had to download the newer version. For some reason the arrival times for my bus are often not listed, so I have to wing it, which is not good when you're traveling for work or for job interviews! Please fix ASAP

Hi! Sorry to hear that you are having issues with the real-time information. This is linked to a third party developer platform. Would you please email your specific issues to so it can be corrected. Thank you!

Easy to use, but lately takes forever to load the route of where the bus is. Another issue I have been seen for quite some time is that the busses don't show in real time, although on the map it says there is no incoming bus but there actually is a bus coming. Would really like it if the busses showed on the map on real time always not just every so often

THIS APP SUCKS! MAKES MY LIFE MISERABLE! WORTH 0 STARS! USELESS APP I just got a job and need to use Commuter express to thousand oaks, I never carry cash so I have to use app. This app only let's you pay $30+ worth of value, Every time I use the app drivers are up my ass saying it's (Base trip) and I have to pay cash instead!! Conclusion: •Have an option where people can transfer money starting at $3 regardless if base or zone trip not be forced to buy 31 day trip
