Digitizing the traveler journey
Digitizing the traveler journey is key to improving urban mobility worldwide. By 2020, nearly 23 billion transport tickets will be purchased via mobile handsets, according to Juniper Research. Next generation ticketing must solve different challenges: multimodal transportation, working with various ticketing formats, barcodes, NFC connection to a smartphone, transport cards and more. Dematerialized ticketing is a way to facilitate issuing and control while lowering operational costs. But it needs a strong digital and transactional infrastructure to work.
