How it works
Open loop NFC
Google Pay Transit uses open loop NFC for transit agencies that accept credit and debit cards as payment. If the terminals meet EMVCo specifications, customers can use credit or debit cards stored on their Google Pay account to pay fares.
Transit agencies can also configure their terminals to enhance user experience with features like transit receipts and faster payment from device lock screens.

Google Pay Transit uses closed loop for transit agencies that use specific transit cards or barcodes as payment.
