For the purposes of these Terms, the meaning of “Services” does not include any physical transit services provided in connection with the purchase and use of Mobile Passes.

1. Mobile Ticketing
A mobile pass refers to a type of pass valid for use on a ST operated vehicle, which is purchased only through ST’s mobile app on an iOS or Android device.
When a Mobile Ticket is purchased through the TGo App, the Mobile ticket will be placed in the Ticket Wallet section of the TGo App. The pass must be activated by the user in the TGo App prior to boarding a transit vehicle.
You must display the activated Mobile Ticket upon boarding a ST vehicle, which may include electronic scanning. Any delay in displaying or failure to display the Mobile Ticket, including, but not limited to, your mobile device being in use for another reason at the time inspection or validation is requested or required, may result in the ST official refusing to allow boarding.
The security of your mobile phone or pass is your responsibility. If your mobile phone or pass is lost or stolen, ST will not be able to provide a duplicate or replacement pass at time of travel (Note: for registered account users, refer to 10. Support & Communications). The mobile pass must be retained during your entire trip on a ST operated trip. If you are unable to show a valid pass, you may be asked to provide another method of payment or to disembark. If the mobile pass has been damaged or is not readable in any way, the pass becomes invalid and a new one must be purchased. If you delete the mobile ticket app you will also delete your mobile passes. If you reinstall the mobile ticket app on the same device it was deleted, your passes will be downloaded to the device. You cannot print or transfer mobile passes.
Your ST mobile pass will be sold to you via ST’s mobile pass partner, Masabi. The mobile pass itself creates a contract between you and ST for the provision of the transport services that the mobile pass allows you to use. It is ST that provides these services to you under the mobile pass and in no event will Masabi be responsible for or have any liability to you in relation to these services or their availability or performance (including your use or access to any ST operated vehicle, the ST network, your use of any services provided under your mobile pass or for your use of the mobile retail app).
2. Prices and Receipts
