Apple has announced that Apple Pay support will soon come to shipping systems in major US cities so users can print their iPhone or Apple Watch to pay for their trip (via TechCrunch ].
While the company did not give out details, it noted that the transit systems in New York, Chicago and Portland would receive Apple Pay support beginning later in 2019.
"This is & # 39; The first time we saw the Apple Pay pick-up compatibility with transit, the support went live in Beijing and Shanghai, for example, almost a year ago, still several cities are a good thing, just because it makes it much easier to find out the transit system When landing a new place. "
Subway and rails in London, Moscow, Tokyo and Guangzhou already support the ability to pay for Apple Pay prices. Transit systems in Shanghai and Bejing allow users to add their preloaded transit card for Apple Pay with a service called Express Transit. It is likely that similar functionality will be provided to riders of US metro systems.
Concerning Canada … TTC says they have future plans to integrate, but who knows when it will actually happen.
