“After over a century of stagnation, we are seeing the seismic impacts of mobile, cloud and low-cost hardware benefitting rail operators and passengers alike.”
How you pay for your journey on public transport has probably changed in the last five years. And if it hasn’t, it will soon. Paper or token based tickets have been mainstays of the industry since those first 19th century journeys but not for much longer. With the digitisation of society extending into the rail and metro industry, we are now seeing an embrace of innovative ticketing solutions offering benefits to passengers and transport operators alike. Fare collection underpins the industry’s growth, and solutions that do it in a better way, and increase revenue present a hugely attractive opportunity. To learn more about this we spoke to leading experts and practitioners from around the world from rail and metro operators, key consultants and solutions providers. In this guide, we take a global tour of developments from biometrics scans to nation-wide e-tickets and much more so download and read today!
