The London Borough of Westminster is set to roll out the first multiservice cards that would allow residents access to a range of local services.
The digital card will be used in conjunction with the new MyWestminster portal and is now available for download for Apple Wallet and Google Pay users. Initially, the digital card will provide access across Westminster's library services but will soon be designed to be compatible with the free-to-use City Save scheme, which offers residents impressive discounts and savings on everything from galleries, including Tate Modern.
Councillor Paul Swaddle, Cabinet Member for Finance and Smart City at Westminster City Council commented: “The new MyWestminster portal is a key example of how we plan to make Westminster a world-leading smart city with people at its heart and marks a key first step in our digital journey.
“The portal makes accessing services simpler and more intuitive, and our digital card will offer a technology-driven, environmentally-friendly experience sitting alongside other cards in your Apple or Google Pay wallet”.
“London is the fintech capital of the world and so it’s absolutely right that residents in the city centre are able to harness technology to navigate Westminster with ease. We look forward to opening up access to a range of services, from local swimming pools to gyms – watch this space.”
