Everything You Need to Know About Contactless Ticketing for Public Transport (cEMV)

The term “contactless ticketing” has been adopted to refer to the use of contactless bank cards to tap and ride on public transit systems.  In this blog post we explore the use of contactless bank cards, and these same cards emulated through Apple/Google Pay on mobile, for use as a means to simply tap and travel on public transport.
