Italian payment technology services provider SIA has reached an agreement with Venice's public transport company AVM to enable residents and tourists alike to use their payment cards and smartphones to buy tickets on board the city's iconic "vaporetto" waterbuses. The new service, which AVM Holding expects to launch by the end of the year, aims to significantly improve ticket payment and issuing procedures, allowing the crew to select the passenger's ticket type, accept contactless payment by card or smartphone and print out a receipt using 650 Android SmartPOS terminals.
