Metro SmarTrip cards can now be loaded and reloaded in the app
Google has been working hard to expand the utility of Google Pay, not just across thousands of banks, but for more types of transactions. One of these is public transit payments and passes, previously available in select cities in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, India, Japan, Singapore, Russia, and Ukraine. Today Google is adding support for the transit system of the United States capital, Washington DC.
Metro riders can now load their SmarTrip cards into Google Pay, using it at NFC-equipped train stations, busses, and public parking lots.
