ASECs ticket-vending machines are located in highly trafficked railway stations or stops and can be used 24/7. The transaction is enabled by epay Poland, a division of global electronic payments provider and distributor Euronet Worldwide.

In recent news, On Track Innovations (OTI), has unveiled that its OTI WAVE technology has been certified for inclusion in Visa’s Compliant Products List. The OTI WAVE is an NFC add-on for smartphones, tablets and PCs.
