Meep and LISNR Partner on Contactless Authentications for Transit Operators


Meep and LISNR have partnered on contactless authentications for bus, train and transit operators.

This collaboration adds LISNR’s proximity verification technology to Meep’s mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) mobile app and platform capabilities, the companies said in a Monday (March 6) press release.

“LISNR’s technology enhances the mobility ecosystems that Meep creates, making them more widely usable, and therefore, this partnership unlocks tremendous opportunities for American cities,” Meep CEO Guillermo Campoamor said in the release.

PYMNTS research has found that workers and students expect their payment preferences to carry over to their daily commutes.

Nearly 90% of transit users now expect contactless fare options for their travels, according to the “Transit Payments Report,” a PYMNTS and American Express collaboration.

With the new partnership, Meep will be able to leverage LISNR’s ultrasonic proximity verification solution for mobile payments and mobile ticketing, handle both online and offline passengers with one solution and eliminate the need for QR code scanners and NFC readers, according to the press release.
