Montreal picks Oberthur for contactless transit ticketing system

STM, the Societè de Transport de Montreal, has appointed Oberthur Technologies to supply contactless cards for use throughout the Montreal region’s public transport network, including buses, the subway and commuter trains throughout the Greater Montreal area and the city of Quebec. The cards provide both a contact and a contactless interface, conform to the Calypso standard and will be delivered over four years.

“Customizable, secure microprocessor contactless cards represent the future of public transport,” says Frederic Chevreton, general manager of the payment product line at Oberthur’s Card Systems division. “We are dedicated to providing these technologies to our transit customers and accompanying them into a new era of contactless technologies.”
