Convenience and speed for secure transit payments

Contactless smart cards are becoming more important in mass transit programs and have rapidly gained favor with financial payment card issuers and associations.

Such cards provide an efficient and convenient substitute for cash, reducing transaction time, increasing security, minimizing fraud, and reducing handling costs for transit operators.
