Transit announced Apple Pay and Google Pay is now available in the app, which allows riders to purchase their fare without having to take out their credit card or re-enter payment information.
The transit systems that now support Apple Pay and Google Pay in Transit include: AC Transit (Oakland), Big Blue Bus (Santa Monica, Calif.), GET (Bakersfield, Calif.), Omnitrans (San Bernardino, Calif.), MTD (Champaign-Urbana, Ill.), JTA (Jacksonville, Fla.), The COMET (Columbia, S.C.), and EMBARK (Oklahoma City).
“Riders can already pay their fares in Transit with either cash or card. So it’s only natural we add Apple Pay and Google Pay to the mix,” said David Block-Schachter, chief business officer at Transit. “Since launch, we’ve seen an impressive number of users opt for Apple Pay and Google Pay as their preferred mode of payment in the app. It’s just the latest way we’re helping transit agencies give riders the convenient, cutting-edge experience they expect.”
Transit said is working with additional mobile ticketing providers to ensure the app will support Google Pay and Apple Pay for their systems.
“Token Transit's integration capabilities allow riders to pay for fares in the mobile apps they already use,” said Morgan Kikuchi-Conbere, CEO at Token Transit. “Transitmakes riders' plan & pay experience even simpler by supporting Apple Pay and Google Pay. We are thrilled to offer riders a secure and efficient way to pay in Transit.”
