Visa Urban Mobility
Visa has a successful history of supporting private companies, public transport operators and technology enablers to deliver digital payments acceptance in the urban mobility sector— transforming the passenger experience for millions of people worldwide. We’ve worked with more than 150 cities—large and small—around the world to implement contactless fares using debit, credit and prepaid solutions. Plus, we’ve partnered with companies to launch mobile-based solutions for electric vehicle charging and parking, and we continue to develop new solutions for tolls and shared mobility services.
To fully transform the passenger experience from the first mile to the last, we built the Visa Global Urban Mobility team of dedicated global strategists and regional implementation specialists. The team has supported contactless implementations around the world by providing guidance, best practices and hands-on assistance—helping launch projects more quickly and with maximum impact.
