Paper tickets, metal coins and plastic cards have all been used to help commuters pay fares, but one train operatior in the UK is looking to the future of travel payments. In order to get its travelers onboard with the use of bPay's contactless payment wristbands, c2c is giving out complimentary bands to more than 8,000 passengers.
In order to make travel a little bit easier, consumers can simply wear the band like a watch and tap to pay at designated points. As well as increasing convenience, the contactless payment tool also provides huge cost-saving incentives for passengers.
Now that smartwatches are becoming more integral to a user's daily life, it's easy to imagine that there will also be apps in the future that will also be able to make easy, contactless travel payments in the same manner.
