Google Wallet takes New Yorkers to the beach

The Google Wallet Express

Google is promoting adoption of its Google Wallet service in the New York area with the offer of a free trip to the beach this weekend.

“On Saturday, July 14th, we’ll be paying for round-trip train tickets on NJ Transit from Penn Station to Long Branch (including the Long Branch Beach entrance fee),” says Google. “Before you hit the sand, you’ll get the chance to see Google Wallet in action and use it to get your NJ Transit tickets at Penn Station.

“The specially-scheduled Google Wallet train leaves at 9:00 am sharp, and your ticket will allow you to return from Long Branch at any time on July 14th (check NJ Transit’s website for scheduled route times). There’s limited room on the train, so be sure to get to Penn Station early to check out Google Wallet and get your free ticket to the beach!”
