SacRT begins contactless bankcard payments on light rail system, US [free access]

September 3, 2021

The Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) has deployed the open-loop transit fare payment system in collaboration with Visa, Caltrans, Cybersource, Littlepay, and SC Soft on all light rail transit (LRT) lines.


Passengers can pay for transit using their credit, debit, or prepaid card or their NFC-enabled device on readers that are installed in all light-rail trains.


The deployment of this fare payment system is a part of a state-wide initiative to improve and simplify the transit experience through the California Integrated Travel Project (Cal-ITP).
