Routes involving transportation transfers require users to make multiple separate fare purchases covering different individual segments of the trip. Purchasing tickets for a trip separately from choosing the routing option and needing to make multiple purchases for a single trip is a complex, cumbersome, and inefficient user experience. This disclosure describes techniques that enable users to prepay the fare covering all segments of a desired transportation route with a single purchase. The prepaid fare is represented with a single unique code that can be scanned to verify fare validity at fare readers. The techniques also enable users to purchase multiple tickets for future use and save routes and/or source-destination pairs for easier future purchases and dynamic pricing updates. The techniques improve the convenience, ease, transparency, and efficiency of planning and paying for travel, and reduce the potential for ticketing-related disruption during a trip.
