Can I use my contactless credit or debit card to pay transit fares?

Chances are you can't use your contactless credit or debit card to pay transit fares currently, but many U.S. transit operators are working to make this possible. Called open payment, it enables the use of bank-issued contactless credit or debit cards from American Express, Discover Network, MasterCard or Visa for direct transit fare payments without a separate transit fare card. This also paves the way for direct transit fare payments using mobile phones with Near Field Communications (NFC), which works with open contactless payments.
