PATCO, Cubic expand contactless payment pilot

Posted on July 16, 2012

The open payment program between Lindenwold, N.J.-based PATCO (Port Authority Transit Corp.) and Cubic Transportation Systems Inc., expanded with the acceptance of American Express contactless payment cards at all PATCO gates and parking terminals. Now, riders will be able to use American Express contactless payment cards, as well as cards from other major payment networks, to make secure transit payments at PATCO.

Cubic officials said that while the expansion of the PATCO open payment program will result in riders carrying fewer plastic payment cards in their purses and wallets and will move riders through PATCO’s stations faster than ever, there is another benefit to the program.
