Hazleton Public Transit (HPT) takes the privacy of its users very seriously. Online service providers are legally required to obtain consent of the parent or guardian before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13; if you are a child under 13, please do not create a HPT SmartPay app account.
HPT SmartPay Application by Modeshift
HPT allows a rider to buy (or receive) and use transit passes through our custom mobile app (also referred to as the HPT SmartPay app). This custom mobile app was created by Modeshift. These Terms apply to your use of our Services.
You must have a HPT account to use the Services; you can create one via the HPT SmartPay App.
When you access HPT SmartPay App, you will be required to sign up for an account and provide an e-mail and/or telephone number for account verification purposes. You shall provide us with accurate, complete, and updated information about yourself. You may not transfer your account to anyone else without prior written HPT permission.
You represent and warrant that you are an individual of legal age to form a binding contract (or if not, you’ve received your parent’s or guardian’s permission to use the Services and your parent or guardian has agreed to these Terms on your behalf).
You will only use the Services for your own personal, non-commercial use, and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party, and only in a manner that complies with all laws that apply to you. If your use of the Services is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren’t authorized to use the Services. We cannot and will not be responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks the law.
You must protect the security of your account and your mobile device, and you are responsible for any activity associated with your account.
Purchasing Tickets. The Services allow you to purchase certain HPT tickets which are listed and described in the HPT SmartPay Mobile App. If any issues arise with such Tickets, you must contact HPT.
Creating an HPT SmartPay Mobile account and accessing some of the features of the Services are free; you will only be charged the price of the Ticket when you buy Tickets through the Services. Additional Ticket terms may apply. Tickets may expire after a certain period of time, as noted when purchasing Tickets.
Purchase and Payment. When you purchase a Ticket through the App, you will pay the amount of the Ticket as presented to you. We use a third-party payment processor to charge your designated payment method. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to these Terms. We are not responsible for errors caused by the Third Party App Provider, or Agency. By agreeing to purchase a Ticket(s), you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to initiate a charge to your Payment Method for the total purchase price of the Ticket(s). If we, through the Payment Processor, are unable to process payment from you, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand.
HPT SmartPay does not at any point hold, own or control funds, actually or constructively receive, take possession of or hold any money or monetary value for transmission, or advertise, solicit or hold itself out as receiving money for transmission.

Miscellaneous. The failure of either you or HPT to exercise, in any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. You and HPT agree that unless expressly stated otherwise in these Terms, these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding between you and HPT, and that it supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms.
