Mass Transit Payments Survey

Customer satisfaction is an extremely vital element to mass transit authorities in order to keep ridership and revenues high — and payments and payments security are two critical elements to keeping customer satisfaction levels high. 

With this in mind, ACI Worldwide conducted the 2016 ACI Worldwide Mass Transit Payments Survey to assess the current sentiment of U.S. public transportation riders in regard to payment preferences and payments security. The survey encompassed 2,006 riders from the nine largest metropolitan transportation systems in the U.S.

Based on the results of this survey, it is clear that mass transit authorities must do more to increase the perception of the security of non-cash payment methods among riders.
