NJ Transit partners with Google Wallet for ‘tap and pay’ option:

NJ Transit is the first public transportation agency to partner with Google Wallet, allowing customers to wave their smart phones in front of a sensor to pay and sparing them the hassle of fishing for cash or credit cards.

The “contactless payment” options are available at New York Penn Station ticket vending machines and windows, at the Newark Liberty International Airport Rail Station (AirTrain), on bus routes 6, 43, 80, 81, 87 and 120 and on some buses on the 126 line, NJ Transit announced today.
