The new Mobile Pass service will allow users of Milan’s buses, trams and underground network to both purchase transport passes with an NFC phone and validate them for travel.

Participants in the trial will be issued free of charge with a Samsung S5230 NFC phone running a transport ticketing software application developed by Telecom Italia.
