Starship Technologies now accepting BoilerExpress as payment

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Starship Technologies, the autonomous robot food delivery service on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus, now accepts BoilerExpress as a payment method.

Using the Starship Deliveries app, users can use BoilerExpress as their payment method at checkout to pay for meals. The app can be downloaded here.

BoilerExpress is a debit account that gives on-campus buying power for food, laundry and more. It offers the option of preloading funds to an online debit account that can be accessed with the swipe of your Purdue ID card at over 30 retail locations across campus. A BoilerExpress debit account is available to staff and faculty currently employed by Purdue, students in active status and official retirees who have West Lafayette as their primary campus.

More than 30 Starship robots were launched at Purdue in September.
