Toronto transit to test mobile, contactless payments

More mobile payment news on the transit front. The Toronto Star is reporting that commuters in Toronto will soon be able to pay their fares by mobile and contactless card. The program will begin sometime this summer. According to the story, the Toronto regional transportation authority, Metrolinx, will be using "open payments," meaning that instead of having to tap a Presto Card, the contactless transit card currently used, commuters can now pay with any contactless card or NFC-enabled mobile device.
