Panel: ‘Contactless Smart Cards for Transit Fare Payment: A Paradigm Shift’

MTA New York City Transit is exploring an option that permits payment of fare at the point of entry using a standard, bank-issued contactless smart card device. This is a paradigm shift from traditional approaches to fare collection in which transit agencies issue fare media and tickets that are integral to a stand-alone, custom-designed fare collection system. Panelists will review this paradigm shift and explore some of its implications.
