Google Pay Lets People Use their Phone as Ticket On Las Vegas Monorail
Google today said its Google Pay app can now serve as a transit ticket on the Las Vegas monorail system. People visiting Las Vegas will be able to use Google Pay to purchase their monorail ticket online and add it to the app. The service includes prepaid, single-use, or other types of passes. Once purchased, people will be able to use their phone as the ticket at monorail stations. Google says the system is powered by NXP's MIFARE contactless system, which relies on NFC for authentication at gates. Travelers will need to hold their phone to a reader at the gate in order to enter the monorail. Las Vegas monorail passes in Google Pay include data such as recent transactions, trips, and the location of monorail stops. The most recent version of Google Pay is free to download from the Google Play Store. Google says support for more transit systems in more cities in on the way.
