To meet evolving customer preferences, urban transportation agencies are shifting from traditional ticketing options and adopting contactless, open loop systems that provide riders with more seamless payment experiences. This transformation to “touch-free” transit is a major step toward helping to decrease operating costs and increase transit system efficiencies. One which requires the effective implementation, management and processing of contactless payment technologies. That’s why Visa created the Visa Ready for Transit program – establishing a network of partners certified by Visa to accelerate the delivery of world-class payments solutions and services. And ultimately, to improve the urban mobility payment experience for everyone.

FEIG ELECTRONIC is a leading global technology supplier in the field of RFID readers, Controllers, Sensors and Self-Service Payment Terminals, headquartered in Weilburg, Germany. As part of their portfolio in the NFC/Open Payments category, the company introduced their innovative cVEND platform— which enables secure transit payment transactions for both contactless open loop credit cards and closed loop public transport ticketing thereby creating seamless user experiences on public transport methods. Today FEIG payment terminals serve as the gateway to a fast, frictionless, end-to-end journey.
