The digital integration of transport modes enabled by Mobility as a Service (MaaS) has proven a vital solution for a greener transport sector.
Seamless, door-to-door mobility and the freedom to move about: it goes hand in hand with free choice and safe ways of payment and ticketing.
In just a couple of weeks, IT-TRANS 2022 will explore the golden ticket to seamless passenger experience through numerous sessions on payment and ticketing. May we interest you in a lunchtime talk with experts on open loop ticketing? Or are you curious how to build seamless mobility with MaaS?
Below we share with you our guide to all things ticketing and payment at IT-TRANS!
The first side-event of the week sets the right tone for the rest of IT-TRANS. The workshop joins forces of UITP and the Smart Ticketing Alliance (STA), who will invite a high-level panel of speakers to dive into the topic of MaaS. UITP and STA will also present results of the first paper launched by their joint Working Group Ticketing in MaaS.
