UITP Academy is launching the training program on Ticketing and Fare Management between November 6-8, 2023 with Regional Training Center, New Jersey Transit. The course will be 3 days included classroom base sessions, international case studies and a technical visit.

Ticketing is the key for public transport operators and authorities to collect fares from the passengers. Nowadays, the increasing use of technology supports the need of various fare types and payment methods transforming from classic paper tickets to contactless cards and smart phones, while opening up endless opportunities for data collection and analysis. The challenge starts with trying to understand closed-loop vs open-loop, card-centric vs system-centric, prepaid vs post-paid, account-based ticketing, open payment, SIM-centric mobile ticketing, Secure Element, HCE, interoperability, multiservice, beacons, NFC, QR code…and so on.

  • Understand, analyze and discuss available ticketing systems and fare management trends
  • Giving a worldwide overview of practices and solutions in ticketing 
  • Lay the basis of tariff structures, pricing and fare policy, essential to the design of a ticketing solution
