Contactless and mobile Near-Field Communication (NFC) use radio frequency technology to perform transactions, and with a simple tap, the Card or mobile phone and fare gate exchange secure payment information.
Contactless and mobile NFC payments in transit offer a tremendous opportunity to streamline fare gate operations, helping reduce the costs and resources associated with a proprietary fare system, while creating an easier and more rewarding customer experience for travelers.
Contactless and mobile NFC technology offer benefits that may help transit merchants in the following ways:
Travelers look for the universal contactless indicator on the back of their Card and the contactless symbol at the fare gate that indicates contactless enablement.
