Wednesday 1 July 2020 13:52 CET | News

BPC’s smart city payment division, O-CITY, has joined the Visa Ready for Transit program for mass transit systems. 

Acceptance to the program means that O-CITY is a now certified partner and available to cities globally to accelerate their digital transformation. O-CITY enables tap-to-pay for travellers using their existing Visa card, a mobile phone, or a wearable device such as a smartwatch.

Visa Ready is bringing together all players in the ecosystem to drive the adoption of open-loop systems. For transport agencies, the adoption of an open-loop system frees them from the hassle of building and maintaining a payment system, allowing them to focus on offering the traveller experience as travellers can pay with the mobile phone or card they already have.
