The Jule, Dubuque’s public transportation system, resumed collecting fares. Riders will now have two additional payment options available to them:
“MyJule” Mobile App – The Jule is pleased to introduce the new “MyJule” mobile app that will allow passengers to scan their smartphone for payment when riding the bus. Users can purchase bus passes on their smartphone before a trip and when boarding the bus simply scan the QR code which serves as their bus pass. Riders can purchase an 11-ride pass for $15 or a monthly unlimited ride pass for $45 within the app. The app also allows users to track the bus, plan trips or save favorite stops, and select the route or transportation mode that works best for them. The “MyJule” mobile app is available for free download on Android and Apple devices and can be found on Google Play and the App Store by searching for “MyJule” in the search bar.
Jule Smart Pass Swipe Card – Riders now also have the option to purchase a Jule Smart Pass, a reloadable swipe card, as a form of payment. Jule Smart Passes are convenient to load before riding the bus, offer balance protection if your card is lost or stolen, and can be reloaded automatically with the auto-buy feature to ensure uninterrupted service.
Users can purchase and load the swipe card with 11 rides for $15 or a monthly unlimited ride pass for $45. Cards cost $1 at time of purchase and $5 if a replacement card is needed. Jule Smart Passes can be purchased and loaded by visiting the Intermodal Transportation Center located at 950 Elm St. in Dubuque. Once purchased, cards can be reloaded in-person at the Intermodal Transportation Center, online at juletransit.org/smartpass, or by calling 563.690.6134.
