Mobile Ticket Option Now Available for New York CityPASS Program
New York (November 28, 2017) —
New York City’s original big-savings ticket booklet now offers a mobile ticket option. The New York CityPASS® program, which saves travelers 40% off admission to the Big Apple’s very best attractions, including the Empire State Building, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History, has gone mobile.
Offering packaged, discounted admission to the most iconic attractions in 12 North American destinations, City Pass, Inc., has always focused on making travel easier and less expensive. The company’s decision to offer mobile tickets—a move that dramatically enhances convenience for travelers—began last month with the successful launch of a similar option for the Tampa Bay CityPASS program.
“It was exciting to watch the debut of the New York mobile ticket option unfold in real time,” said CityPASS President and CEO Megan Allen. “Shortly after the option went live on our website, a pair of mobile tickets was purchased in Euros by a traveler who selected French as their language. Five minutes later, those same tickets were scanned for entry at one of our partner attractions.”
The language option is a benefit that will be applied to all future mobile ticket programs for other CityPASS partner destinations. Mobile tickets will be delivered to the purchaser’s smartphone in the language the buyer used while browsing the CityPASS website. For international visitors, it is especially helpful to have an end-to-end translated experience in the language of their choosing.
The New York CityPASS program includes prepaid admission to:
- The Empire State Building (CityPASS day/night ticket includes two general admission visits: one during the day and a return visit the same night)
- American Museum of Natural History
- The Metropolitan Museum of Art
- Option: Top of the Rock Observation Deck OR Guggenheim Museum
- Option: Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island OR Circle Line Sightseeing Cruise
- Option: 9/11 Memorial & Museum OR Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
The mobile ticket will work in the same manner as printed CityPASS ticket booklets, although instead of scanning a printed ticket at the attraction, the visitor will scan their phone. Mobile tickets, as well as ticket booklets, can be purchased online at CityPASS.com. Current prices (valid through Feb. 28, 2018): $122 for adults; $98 for children (6-17).
For 20 years, CityPASS ticket booklets and admission cards have been premier products for travelers who want to visit a destination’s top attractions while enjoying significant savings. CityPASS booklets/admission cards, which have a 98 percent customer recommendation rating, are available for New York City, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Southern California, Tampa Bay and Toronto.
