São Paulo, March 2, 2020 - VouD, an urban mobility application developed by Autopass, now accepts a debit card to recharge the Single Ticket, BOM, Legal card, as well as to issue the QR Code, used for payment fare on the Metro and CPTM. The new function is available to account holders and Savers at Caixa with the Elo flag card.

The development of the new functionality of the application arose from the consumer demand for new means of payment within VouD. “Based on studies that we carry out each semester, we identify our customers' desires for new forms of payment so that they have more ease and more option when traveling from one point to another. We found strategic partners at Caixa and Elo for this innovation ”, says Rubens Gil Filho, president of Autopass.
