Google Wallet Partners With Aurionpro Transit To Offer Public Transport Payment Solutions

Aurionpro Transit Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of Aurionpro Solutions Limited, has joined forces with tech giant Google to launch wallet solutions.

What Happened: On Thursday, Aurionpro Transit announced its collaboration with Google to integrate its app-based and ORS ticketing solution with Google Wallet. This integration will enable passengers to plan their journeys, purchase tickets, and ride public transport with ease, all while storing and reviewing their tickets in one secure location.

After purchasing a ticket, the commuter can store it in Google Wallet as a co-branded card or or QR code pass/ticket. Within the app, a customer can plan the journey or select one using Google Maps, and directly purchase the ticket for interoperable, hassle-free travel.
