UK: Orange UK Tests Transit Ticketing
Users could tap their phones to pay fares on a limited number of buses. They could also reportedly consult their phone screens to see a record of their journeys, how long a journey took and what time of day it occurred on.
Orange has also trialed stadium ticketing in the UK and payment in France through its sister operator Orange France. Expect Orange UK to launch NFC payment and perhaps other applications commercially before the end of 2010 as part of its partnership with Barclaycard.
