The Passenger Contactless EMV Portal makes it easy for riders to use their contactless bank cards to pay for a journey, while staying apprised of how much they’ve spent and where via an online account. Easy to use; easy to travel.

The number of contactless cards in the UK is growing and consumers are increasingly comfortable with using them as a principal method of payment. The Passenger Contactless EMV Portal enables operators to take advantage of this by integrating contactless with Passenger.

Using the Passenger Contactless EMV Portal and its Model 2 aggregated pay-as-you-go approach, bus riders can jump aboard a bus, tap on with the same card they use in the shops, then take a seat and monitor their travel interactions. The Passenger Contactless EMV Portal, accessible via desktop and app, provides a real-time window into each account, where users can manage transactions and journeys.

Contactless fares purchased using the Passenger Contactless EMV Portal can be capped according to an operators’ fare structure, making for happier, more confident paying customers.

The Passenger Contactless EMV Portal is designed around the concept that, if it is easier to buy a product and feel in control of a purchase, it is more likely that the interaction will be repeated. By making it easy for customers to pay, travel and understand their transactions, the Passenger Contactless EMV Portal encourages repeat patronage.
