Contactless Ticketing System

Contactless Ticketing (cEMV) for Agencies of All Sizes

Contactless Ticketing Systems (cEMV)

The use of contactless bank cards, often referred to as contactless EMV (cEMV), to ride on public transport exploded onto the scene a few years ago. These contactless systems are unique in their ability to allow a passenger of any kind to turn up and travel using what they already have in their pocket, automatically calculating the correct fare to charge and doing so to the credit/debit card they travelled with.

This has heralded a better way to move around urban areas by freeing passengers from needing to purchase a ticket before traveling. cEMV systems make a lot of sense not just for passengers, but also for agencies who can move away from the cost of issuing paper tickets, their own plastic cards and collecting cash.
