San Francisco Trials Mobile Payment For Public Transportation

Read original story on: Finextra

San Francisco just became the first US city to attempt bringing mobile payment into its public transportation system. The city’s Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is teaming up with vendor GlobeSherpa’s mobile ticketing platform for a pilot program, set to launch this summer, which will produce a mobile app that reportedly allows users to store a debit or credit card or use PayPal to purchase tickets. If this is successful, we humbly suggest the MTA here at NYC to get on it ASAP.
