Bytemark and Advanced Mobile Payment Inc. (AMP) partnered to create an EMV Level 3-certified solution for Toronto that will accept both contact and contactless payments, offering a secure and convenient transportation ticketing option.

Ontario transit agency Metrolinx recently began using AMP’s 8200 EMV for the Union Pearson Express, which transports four million riders annually between the Toronto airport and the city. It marks the first time this smart terminal has been deployed for transit purposes. The 8200 EMV is PCI and PA-DSS compliant.

The Android-based device allows travelers to avoid lines at ticket counters by instead purchasing tickets from mobile agents located in common areas, on platforms, and even inside transit cars en route to their destination.

The terminal is the product of a partnership between Bytemark, a transit payment provider that has upgraded fare collection systems for dozens of agencies, and AMP, a provider of innovative smart terminals and payments solutions.

The collaboration combines Bytemark’s validation application with AMP’s handheld payment device, allowing for all-in-one rapid sales, ticket scanning, and receipt printing, no external printer required.

The Metrolinx deployment marks new territory for AMP. The company has previously provided solutions to the retail and hospitality industries.
