North Central Area Transit is buying an electronic payment system. Ottawa City Commissioner Wayne Eichelkraut says NCAT customers will be able to use an NCAT card to load funds onto for taking rides. They’ll also be able to use a cell phone app to pay for rides.
It’s partly to minimize the spread of germs that go from hand to hand via money.
Eichelkraut says NCAT will install the system when it comes in during the next few weeks.
