Littlepay brings first tap-to-pay pilot to Portugal

Monday 26 July 2021 12:39 CET | News

Littlepay has introduced Portugal's first contactless transit ticketing system, in the city of Porto, in partnership with Visa.

Apart from Visa, the transit payment service provider is partnering with Andante (an intermodal ticketing system for the Metropolitan Area of Porto), Unicre, Card4B and Cybersource, to launch a pilot project on Metro do Porto’s Linha Violeta (E) and STCP Bus Line 500, which will offer passengers a more secure way to pay for fares.

With ‘Tap-to-Pay’, users can experience paying fares by tapping their contactless debit, credit, prepaid card, or payment-enabled device on payment readers. There is no need to carry cash, queue for tickets, or understand the local ticketing system. In the coming months, Littlepay plans to roll out the system to all metro lines; and, by the end of 2022, contactless payments will be accepted across the entire STCP bus fleet.
