Account-Based Ticketing is a ticketless way of allowing people to travel meaning they tap or scan using a secure token, linked to an account in the back office, to make a journey. The location and amount of taps calculates the fare, which is charged to the passenger post journey. This means riders no longer need to buy a ticket and can benefit from best fare policies.
In this blog post, we run through a short 7-step guide for agencies and operators looking to enable Account-Based Ticketing and Mobility-as-a-Service in a cost-effective, easy and risk free way.
Account-Based Ticketing removes the need for passengers to purchase tickets in advance of travel, while fare capping limits riders’ spend based on rules set by the agency and ensures fares are charged based on usage of the system.
