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.
