From the Steamship Authority:

We are pleased to announce our new eFerry ticket, which will allow customers to purchase and redeem ferry tickets all from their mobile phones! The eFerry ticket uses NFC technology and loads the tickets straight to your Apple Wallet or Google Pay. Then, just wave your phone at one of our readers and you're on the way! The eFerry tickets are being tested this month on the high-speed ferry route and will be available on all routes in the first quarter of 2020.
