Please join us for a briefing from the MBTA on the August launch of the new contactless payment system. Beginning on August 1, riders will be able to pay fares by tapping a contactless credit/debit card, phone with a mobile wallet, or watch on fare readers on buses, on Green Line vehicles, on Mattapan Line vehicles, and at all gated subway stations. This new initiative is part of the MBTA’s goal of offering easier, more convenient, and modernized ways for riders to pay fares. Following this overview, there will be time for Q&A.
