First implementations of the Open Payment System in Poland are currently being prepared in Jaworzno and Łódź. At the turn of 2016 and 2017, first passengers will have the opportunity to use public transport without the necessity to hold a paper ticket or a city card. They will just need a pay card with a contactless payment function.
