European payment technology services provider SIA has teamed up with Microsoft, Aitek and Intesa Sanpaolo to enable passengers to pay for Milan underground tickets at turnstiles using MasterCard and Visa contactless cards. SIA said it created the digital platform for the service launched by public transport provider ATM, the first available in Italy following launches of similar systems by other firms in London, Moscow, Chicago, Singapore and Vancouver. Contactless cards can now be used to open turnstiles in 113 stations of Milan's underground network, said SIA.
