The Urban Mobility Open Payments Forum was launched in July 2021 to the advance adoption of open loop payment systems in public transport across the globe and help cities create efficient, inclusive, and sustainable door-to-door travel experiences, enabled by simple, convenient, and secure open loop payments systems.
UITP, in collaboration with Visa as lead partner, and alongside other payments industry leaders including American Express, Scheidt & Bachmann, Thales and Flowbird, provides a platform to all relevant stakeholders, including payment systems, industry partners, public transport operators and authorities.
The Forum facilitates an exchange of ideas and a dialogue on solutions and processes. Through raising awareness, it aims to make implementing open loop payment systems easier and less costly for public transport organisations.
The Urban Mobility Open Payments Forum is actively looking for new members to broaden the discussions on open loop payment in public transport. To become involved, please contact Andrea Soehnchen at UITP.
The Forum website will be launched soon!
