    Transfer or Share Your Wallet Tickets

    Sharing tickets and passes in the Wallet app is an effortless process. However, remember that not all passes or tickets are shareable. Tickets/passes missing the “Share” option aren’t transferable through Wallet. The issuer likely doesn’t want you redistributing the ticket, or they currently don’t support Apple Wallet transfers. Contact the ticket merchant/company or visit their website for sharing alternatives.
