MPeso was a mobile money transfer and payment company based in Nicaragua. It operated the prepaid rechargeable contactless smart card system for all the Managua's intra-city buses.[1]

History[edit]

MPeso began operations in Nicaragua in 2011 as the first mobile money transfer and payment company in the country.

In 2013, the company implemented the new digital fare-collection system for Managua's intra-city buses using rechargeable contactless smart cards.[2] The new system was designed by LECIP Arcontia AB, a Swedish producer of contactless smart cards for automatic fare collection. All of the 834 city buses in Managua will be equipped with fare collection systems using MIFARE PLUS smart cards and ARC3300T5 ticket validators from LECIP Arcontia AB.[3]

A total of 600,000 smart cards will be distributed.[4]
