Google Pay’s got a new trick up its sleeve.
Google has announced that Google Pay is gaining support for transit tickets. This means that you can use your phone to purchase your ticket, save it to Google Pay, and then use your phone to ride the transit service.
Support for transit tickets in Google Pay is coming to the Las Vegas Monorail first. Once you’ve saved your transit ticket inside Google Pay, you can use the app to see the location of the nearest Monorail station, too. Support for transit tickets in more cities is coming soon.
Google Pay is already a handy app for storing credit and debit cards, gift cards, and loyalty cards, and now it’s taking another step toward eliminating your wallet entirely by adding transit tickets, too. Here’s to hoping that Google adds transit ticket support for more cities soon so that those of us outside of Las Vegas can get closer to ditching our physical wallet, too.
