Google announced that beginning today, Google Pay can handle transit tickets. However, that new feature is only available in Las Vegas, Nevada, with that city’s monorail system. Google did confirm that more cities and rail systems will be added to the mix soon, but wasn’t able to go into any specific details just yet.
For those in Las Vegas who want to keep their transit tickets stored digitally on their phone, they will need to buy their tickets from the computer or from their phone directly, then save them into Google Pay. Once the transit ticket is saved into the digital wallet, ticket holders only need to hold up their phone up to the contactless readers located at monorail station turnstiles.
Google Pay will also show you your ride history and nearby monorail stations (there are only seven stops in Las Vegas).
Are you looking forward to hosting your transit ticket on your smartphone?
