Littlepay and HID Global finalise their partnership

The partnership with HID Global opens up further contactless open loop payment options for public transit.

Littlepay, a payments infrastructure provider, today announced a partnership with HID Global, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, through their contactless EMV platform integration with HID Global’s ticketing technology. 

The HID® VAL100™ validator and HID TripTick™ ATR220 readers are now EMV® L3 certified for use within Littlepay’s modular payments infrastructure, providing a streamlined contactless payment solution. 

HID Global has a suite of transit ticketing products designed for applications including on-board, platforms, ticket barriers, turnstiles and kiosks. The state of the art HID TripTick reader, and the HID VAL100, when fitted with a TripTick device, offer EMV® Level 2 certification and PCI and SRED compliance. They can read contactless cards, QR codes and barcodes, making them versatile within any AFC system. 

HID Global’s transit devices offer a straightforward installation process and a single point of presentation for any tickets regardless of media.

Solutions designed for better passenger experience

HID Global delivers innovative open source ticketing technology, which supports fast, frictionless payments. Its focus on improving passenger experience is a good fit for Littlepay, which has similar goals. It works with transit agencies to offer simplified payments, combining contactless ‘tap to pay’ technology with a range of fare capping options.

“We are thrilled to partner with HID Global. Their technology fits well within our system, and together we will be offering a solution that puts passenger experience first. Now that the reader and validator are fully integrated and ‘Littlepay ready’, we are able to offer transit agencies our combined solution within weeks of signing a contract.”

Sarah Memmi, Partnerships Manager at Littlepay

“HID is delighted to partner with Littlepay to offer this innovative solution for transit authorities and customers. This is eminently suitable for those cities who want to streamline their approach to deployment for contactless payments and is based on the proven experience of both Access-IS (now part of HID) and of Littlepay’s expertise in the payments space.

Our partnership will enable agencies to offer a powerful customer experience, with our single point of presentation for barcode, NFC and contactless EMV payment, combined with Littlepay’s modular approach”

Susan Stuart, Managing Director, Access-IS Business Unit, Extended Access Technologies, HID Global.

Partner agnosticism

Littlepay has built a network of ‘Littlepay ready’ partners that makes its transit payments infrastructure adaptable to transport agencies’ needs, as well as simple and fast to deploy. The partnership with HID adds to the best-in-class modular options available.
