Your bank account will also be your train ticket

If your transaction banking account has a linked Visa or MasterCard debit card with contactless payment technology – Tap N Go or PayWave – soon you will not need to buy an extra public transport payment card. The NSW Government has announced a customer trial of debit and credit card contactless payments for public transport.

Mastercard Australia said NSW commuters will no longer have to worry about topping up fare accounts. Visitors to NSW will find navigating Sydney ‘as easy as tap and go.’
