Helsinki to deploy contactless smart payments on all public transport modes

Helsinki Regional Transport has signed a deal with Littlepay to introduce contactless smart payments across all modes of transport in Finland’s capital as part of a three-year deal.

Work has already started on the roll-out across Helsinki’s ferry, rail and bus systems and introducing contactless payments is seen as a vital way in boosting public transport use.

The will be a flat-fare pilot introduced for the city’s ferry system and fare capping will also follow as part of the roll-out.

The Helsinki win comes a month after Littlepay announced its involvement in a project to bring contactless payments to Porto airport’s metro line and STCP trams in the second quarter of 2020. Roll-out to the Andante transport network is planned to follow. 

In Porto, Littlepay is working alongside CyberSource, Visa, Porto Intermodal Transport (TIP), Unicre and Card4B. This will be the first time in Portugal that passengers will be able to use a contactless bank card to pay for public transport.
