Based upon the same NFC infrastructure popularized by Visa® payWave™ and Mastercard® PayPass™, Apple Pay allows passengers with credit cards registered with Apple Pay on their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices to pay for goods and services by simply “tapping” their iPhone to compatible Point of Sale payment terminals.

Leveraging the existing contact-less payment devices that CMT has already deployed into more than 35,000 vehicles across the United States, Passengers can now conveniently pay for their ride at the end of the trip with Apple Pay, avoiding the hassle of fumbling with wallets and credit cards as they move across the City. Transactions benefit from the same PCI Level 1 security standards that CMT has certified to, along with the advanced security features inherent toApple Pay. Supported markets include New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, and more than 70 cities in which CMT is active.

Kevin French, Managing Director for CMT commented on the announcement, “The payment industry is experiencing unprecedented innovation around the world, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this change.” Mr. French continued, “CMT’s payment solutions allow our clients to offer their passengers the greatest flexibility when it comes to paying for their rides, including conventional credit cards, Chip & Pin cards, NFC payment, as well as Card-on-File payment through our growing suite of passenger Apps. Our continuing objective is to deliver the most affordable, fully integrated payment ecosystem for mobile transaction payments available to the For-Hire transportation industry.”

This announcement arrives on the heels of last week’s news release that Creative Mobile Technologies and Mobile Knowledge have joined forces to form the world’s largest taxi and for-hire-vehicle technology company.
