Can bikes be unlocked with smart-cards and transit cards?

Our bike features an RFID reader, enabling users to unlock the bicycle with a local transit smart-card. Users can sync a compatible card to their Social Bicycles account through an on-street payment kiosk to avoid carrying extra cards. Keep in mind that not all systems have on-street payment kiosks. Users can also add smart-cards through Android mobile app. 

No backend integration is needed to provide interoperable access through common smart-cards or key fobs on the international ISO standard. This includes any cards or fobs from other bike share or transit systems.
