The nation's third-largest transit system is the first public transportation agency to partner with Google Wallet. The free mobile app enables wireless data transmission between two objects so customers can wave their phones by a sensor and pay for transit tickets.
The service will be available at New York's Penn Station, Newark airport's Air Train station and on select bus routes.
NJ Transit executive director James Weinstein says emerging technologies will streamline the way customers buy their tickets and enhance their experience.
Google Wallet currently is available on Sprint's Nexus S 4G phone and supports Citi MasterCard credit cards and a Google Prepaid Card.
