Snowmass Village Shuttle is upgrading all of its riders to Transit Royale, the new subscription in Transit, Village Shuttle’s official app. Beginning today, Village Shuttle riders will have access to a free Royale subscription, which unlocks additional features, special Village Shuttle branding, new customization options, and complete access to the app across the more than 300 cities supported worldwide.
Snowmass Village has been providing transit services to residents and guests via the Village Shuttle since 1979. In August 2021, Royale launched in cities where transit agencies had not already chosen Transit as their official or recommended app for riders. Snowmass Village Shuttle joins systems across the country in gifting Royale to all its riders, with more agencies planning announcements in the coming months. This partnership represents the Village Shuttle's most recent effort to provide a world-class experience to riders.
As the update rolls out over the next week, riders in Snowmass will receive a message in the app informing them that the Village Shuttle is upgrading them to Transit Royale. From there, users can simply tap to redeem their free subscription.
With Royale, riders have access to power features such as customizable themes, personalized emojis that allow riders to become celebrities on their local bus line, and leaderboards for users competing to help the most riders with Transit’s GO crowdsourcing feature.
This partnership also unlocks the special ability for riders to switch the app icon and theme to match the Village Shuttle’s branding – offering riders a world-class mobile app experience that is at once universal and locally branded.
