Turkcell adds transit card to mobile wallet
Customers with an NFC phone can then use their handset to replace their physical Urfakart when travelling on public transportation. Customers with standard mobiles will continue to use their existing Urfakart card.
"Turkcell Wallet, which we introduced in October of 2012 as the world's most advanced mobile wallet solution, is currently on the mobile phones of 1.2 million people," says Sureyya Ciliv, Turkcell's CEO. "The Turkcell Wallet public transportation system is a first in Turkey and we hope that the 207 public transportation vehicles in Sanliurfa will set an example for other provinces to follow in the near future."
