What will your ticket look like in 2020?
Next generation ticketing is already here. To find out more, see the demonstration on the Thales stand.
Ticketing plays an important role in intermodality for both long and short journeys. Depending on price, comfort and simplicity, travellers may choose to take their car and park it, take a bus, tram, metro or train, or ride a bike and then walk.
Tomorrow’s trips will be intermodal and ticketing will become all inclusive. Through a single purchase, travellers will be able to hop from carpooling to parking, from parking to metro and from metro to bike. And this is starting today! Thanks to TRANSCITY™ from Thales, citizens of Bordeaux in France will soon have a single ticket for bus and trams, interurban coaches, parking and self-service bikes!
Ticketing will become easier for the traveller. No pain and no queues, just riding! This is now time to consider using a traveller’s own media to tap the fare gate or the validator to pay for travel. It could be a contactless bank card or a smartphone. Along with the ticket, the smartphone app will inform travelers on fare products, fare prices, journey planning, real time information, any unexpected disturbance and proposed alternatives.
And what’s next? Can you imagine travelling without having to validate? Come and experience our Ticketing 2020 demonstration on the Thales stand at InnoTrans now, and discover my seamless travel by TRANSCITY™.
