Country: Italy

Payment of mobility services by mobile phone

The innovative feature of this new ticketing system lies in the possibility to create a totally virtual ticketing system using the mobile phone as main device.

From the user point of view, the benefit of using the mobile phone as a tool to access the public transport network is highly enhanced by the highly widespread usage of mobile phones in every day’s life.

The user can indeed use its mobile phone to purchase, pay and use the virtual ticket, anywhere and anytime, without constraints of looking for ticket kiosks or coins for vending machines.

The system implementation has been preceded by a demanding preliminary phase, analysing technical and mainly financial and legal constraints that are specific to Italy.
After the validation of the feasibility study, the implementation phase of a large scale pilot has followed.
