The first function will allow users to have access to the history of trips taken, as well as a report on the money saved in relation to the time spent. Furthermore, any updates regarding the service with any delays and changes will be sent directly from the transport company to the Wallet app. At least for the moment the launch looks set for the end of the year, and is limited to buses in Brighton and Hove in United Kingdom.

The other feature is coming to the United States and will allow passengers to store transportation cards in the app. When the feature rolls out, users will be able to check their prepaid transit card balance and also note their transaction history. All users will also be able to top up the card via Wallet or set it to happen automatically. We will soon know whether this new update will also concern Europe.
