Choosing a Trusted Implementation Partner

Ensure the Interoperability of Fare Collection Systems to Provide Seamless Travel to Commuters

A transit authority has three main objectives: to offer a reliable fare ticketing solution, facilitate the deployment of e-ticketing and give public transport operators (PTO) a choice of service and technology providers.

FIME works with transport authorities to achieve these objectives and deliver seamless transport solutions to consumers. This is achieved through certification schemes, which ensure the interoperability between fare collection systems in a dynamic and evolving environment. Establishing a certification scheme not only guarantees market interoperability, but also assists PTOs in speeding up their migration to new technology.

Enabling Seamless Smart Ticketing Systems

Traveler expectations are at an all-time high. In the age of mobility as a service (MaaS) and the convenience of ‘tap-and-go’ technology, the public transport industry is under increasing pressure to deliver the same frictionless experience with its ticketing systems.

Seamless smart ticketing infrastructures are essential to meeting the needs of our increasingly smart cities. Plus, the opportunities to realize new revenues through the delivery of superior urban transportation systems are great. But in a complex market, with several technologies and trends to consider – from multi-app closed loop right through to fully open EMV systems – transport players need expert support to ensure they select and deliver the best solution for their customers and business model. With unrivalled experience ensuring the security and consistency of card and mobile transactions, FIME is supporting the transport ticketing market to maximize these new opportunities and deliver high-quality, fully compliant and interoperable ticketing systems.
