Vodafone Spain launches bus m-ticketing service in Albacete

Monday 11 July 2016 | 16:28 CET | News
Vodafone Spain has expanded its Vodafone Wallet NFC-based m-payment service to the public bus network of Albacete in central Spain. The operator has teamed up with PrePay Technologies and Gemalto to add the PayBus Albacete card to its Vodafone Wallet app so that customers can validate their tickets on the city's buses by simply moving their smartphones within a few inches of the NFC readers. Vodafone has already rolled out the service in other Spanish cities such as Valencia and Logrono.
