Some New York commuters may soon consider paper railroad passes and lines at ticket vending machines annoyances of the past now that smartphones can be used to pay for the train to work. Metro-North Railroad, the nation's second-largest commuter rail line, said on Wednesday that next month it is starting a mobile ticketing pilot program that allows passengers to buy and display tickets on their iPhone, Android or BlackBerry smartphones. Participants in the trial - initially just railway employees - will be able to download a free app to their smartphone and, with it, use their credit or debit card to buy a digital ticket. Metro-North, which is run by the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority, said that if the pilot is successful it will expand it to include customers. The MTA said that it was too soon to say whether it would consider expanding the service to the New York subway, a much bigger transport network with millions of daily riders. As part of the test, New York railroad staff are comparing the time it takes to use the digital tickets against the current on-board paper ticket selling, collection and inspection. New York is following the lead of Boston, where the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority plans to offer the same service this fall. If employee and customer trials are successful, Metro-North will use a competitive bidding process to choose a technology provider to be its partner moving forward.

While cellphone ticketing has been widespread in Japan for several years, it has been slow to catch on the United States.
The trials comes at a time when smartphones such as the Apple Inc iPhone and phones using Android software from Google Inc are widely used.
While the popularity of BlackBerry phones from Research In Motion, has waned, many New Yorkers, particularly those who work in finance, still use BlackBerrys. Media That Matters - From the serious to the hilarious, we share stories that rise to the top.
Twice a day, I commute to and from Wappingers Falls, New York and Manhattan on the Metro-North. Metro-North is part of the MTA, which is the largest transportation system North America, serving a population of 15.2 million people. For some, the commute can be tough — my commute got easier when I moved to Wappingers Falls from Poughkeepsie.
On some days, it’s so busy that commuters are at a complete standstill trying to get down the stairs.
Metro-North carries roughly 141,000 passengers each day, most of whom take two trips daily.

It covers the 5,000-square-mile area from New York City through Long Island, southeastern New York State, and Connecticut.
I ride the downtown 6 train to get to work, which is one of the most popular routes for commuters. The subway is now at $2.75 per ride, and depending on your location, Metro-North train tickets can be over $500 a month. Between all the people, delays, and the hours you spend on the train — it can be challenging to be on time. I like the hectic work week in the middle of Manhattan, balanced out with a calm weekend upstate.
