Vipnet adds NFC transit payments in Croatia


Croatian carrier Vipnet has added NFC to its mPrijevoz service, allowing commuters in the city of Osijek to store their monthly Butra transport pass on their smartphone and validate it using contactless readers installed on buses and trams. Customers in Zagreb can also use NFC to pay for Nextbike rentals.

Customers in Osijek with a Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy S3 Mini, Galaxy Young, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Mini or LG Optimus L5 NFC phone can all make use of the service. Tickets can be renewed via the mPrijevoz Android app, with the cost being charged to the customer’s Vipnet monthly phone bill.
