To avoid Trolley ticket lines and speed up the boarding process, concert-goers can use the MTS mobile ticketing app called mTicket to purchase and store Trolley passes on their mobile phones at any time prior to arriving at transit stations. 

After the concert, MTS will have an exclusive boarding line only available for mTicket holders allowing front-of-the-line privileges and easy boarding. Multiple mTickets can be purchased on one smart phone too, making it easy for friends traveling to the concert together.
