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

In most cases today you cannot use your contactless credit or debit card from American Express, Discover Network, MasterCard or Visa to pay transit fares. Smart transit cards use different contactless technology that is unique for transit fare applications and differs one system to the next. Contactless credit or debit cards are designed to work the same everywhere, like other bankcards do. Transit operators in France, London, Taiwan, the United States and other countries are currently implementing or at least testing the use of contactless credit or debit cards to pay for fares directly at metro turnstiles and on buses.
