Littlepay Offers Transit Riders More Places to Tap and Pay with American Express

April 25, 2023


American Express® Cards now enabled for contactless payments on the Littlepay platform

Littlepay, a specialist in transit payments processing, announced today that American Express is now integrated on its global transit payments platform. More than 250 transit operators, that use Littlepay, will be able to start accepting American Express, increasing the number of transit systems where American Express Card Members can tap to pay for public transit around the world.

Littlepay has a rapidly growing network of transit operators across the UK, Europe, USA, Latin America and Australia. As the American Express integration is now complete, Littlepay merchants can start accepting American Express as soon as their devices become certified.

Paul Griffin, Global Head of Commerce at Littlepay, said: “Connecting the Littlepay platform to American Express is an important step towards our goal of offering payment choice to public transport riders. Those who always reach for their American Express Card when they tap to pay in retail will be able to do the same when they tap to ride on transit.”

Matthew Robinson, EVP, Global Head of Network and Acquiring Solutions at American Express, added: “The American Express network is growing and expanding around the world, and we’re committed to empowering our Card Members to use their American Express Cards to Tap, Pay and Go on their daily commute. By collaborating with Littlepay, we give our Card Members more places to tap by enabling more transit authorities to accept contactless payments from American Express.”
