The trolley system in Eureka, Arkansas, will be allowing passengers to pay for train rides using credit card payments.

In a release, the city stated that the roughly 1.1 million annual visitors will no longer have to search through wallets, pockets and purses for cash to pay for a ride on the train. Each year, the trolley hosts thousands of riders, who are likely to find the new system more convenient.

“As an added convenience to customers, through a partnership with the Information Network of Arkansas, the city of Eureka Springs now accepts Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards for trolley ticket purchases at the following locations: Eureka Springs Transit & Welcome Center; Planer Hill Park & Ride Welcome Center; and Downtown Trolley Depot,” the city stated in its release.

All over the world, transportation systems are giving travelers the chance to make purchases using the merchant services option. The Times of India reports that Panta Junction railway tickets can now be bought with credit cards for the first time ever. The source reports that the move comes after pressure from many customers including important business men.
