ROLLING ROLLOUT: EMV contactless payments will soon be extended to Helsinki’s bus network

Helsinki Regional Transport has begun the rollout of EMV contactless payments across the Finnish capital’s rail, bus and ferry network.

“Work on this deployment begins immediately, starting with a flat-fare pilot for the city’s ferry route,” technology supplier Littlepay says.

“Rollout to rail and bus, and the introduction of fare capping, will follow.”

UPDATE: Littlepay has contacted us to let us know that, while the contract has been awarded, the ferry pilot is not yet live.
