United States Transit Funding, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its ePassenger© product line to help transit, passenger transportation and travel agency businesses with its eCommerce and eTicketing products and features.
The ePassenger© product line, found at www.epassenger.net, have a number of features that help both public entities and private companies meet a number of business goals including: (1) increase contractual business opportunities, (2) expand local, regional, national and international marketing efforts, and (3) conduct commerce over the Internet and mobile devices.
“The primary goal of ePassenger© is to help public entities and private business increase cash flow while helping consumer confidence by being able to utilize public and private transportation, “Barry Lewis, Chief Executive Officer of United States Transit Funding, Inc. and ePassenger©.
Lewis noted that in light of the current state of the federal transportation appropriations is one primary reason to take advantage of the ePassenger© products.
“After last weeks’ vote in the United States House and Senate on transportation appropriations that allocated about 25 percent of the budget requests, it is more apparent than ever that public transit and private operators of public transportation should be seeking ways to increase cash flow outside of available grant and funding subsidies by increasing farebox and eCommerce/eTicketing revenue,” Lewis said.
“ePassenger© can certainly help with this goal through our eTicketing or our eCommerce & eTicketing product lines.” Additionally, Lewis is very excited about its standalone eCommerce Product Line.
He added that about 95 percent of the tour, charter, shuttle and travel agency marketplace could use a product like this because it will expand business opportunities for companies that are seeking a secure and technology-efficient process needed for consumer confidence as well as reduce the cyclical nature of business operations.
“We are very confident that in the coming months, that our ePassenger© product line is going to be a very attractive option for the tour, charter, shuttle, line run and travel agency marketplace,” Lewis said. “In the coming weeks, we are going to be making a number of strategic announcements that will only help the industry achieve its business goals.”
