Sydney ferries go contactless

12 March 2018  |  6031 views  |  0 Sydney Ferry

Sydneysiders hopping on and off the city's busy commuter ferries and light rail services can now pass through the turnstiles with a tap of their payment cards and smartphones.

The roll out across the transit network follows a successful trial on the popular F1 Manly to Circular Quay ferry service conducted by Mastercard in collaboration with Transport for New South Wales and Commonwealth Bank. During the tests, 15,000 tap-and-go fare payments were logged by card holders from more than 42 countries

Richard Wormald, Mastercard division president for Australasia says: “The trial, which began in July 2017, has been a great success. We are looking forward to rolling out similar solutions in other states, and making Australian cities more connected.”

The wider roll out to Sydney Ferries and light rail services builds on Mastercard’s recent work with Singapore’s Land Transport Authority to implement the first contactless payments program for transit agencies in the Asia Pacific Region.
