    MALAGA: All buses ready for NFC

    The first one hundred users went live earlier this month and EMT is now seeking a further fifty volunteers to take part. Participants can use their NFC phone as their transport ticket on any EMT Malaga bus, all of which are equipped to handle NFC transactions.

    They can also use the service to purchase tickets via their NFC phone as well as check the balance remaining on their travel “card”, view their travel history and obtain information on schedules, bus lines and waiting times via smart posters located at bus stops.
