Rail Ticketing System

Masabi is an expert in delivering fare collection (ticketing) systems to rail operators and agencies around the globe. Masabi launched the first-ever mobile ticketing system for a rail operator in the UK with Chiltern Railways (2007) and the first for a US transit agency (2012) with Boston’s MBTA. Masabi is currently working with over 20 rail agencies around the globe

Boston’s MBTA Mobile Ticketing Deployment

In 2012, to reduce the cost and inconvenience of on-board cash purchases, Boston’s MBTA, the US’s 5th largest transit agency, had been looking to extend its smartcard, CharlieCard, to its Commuter Rail. This would allow riders to move away from paying on-board with cash – however the proposed smartcard project was expected to cost over $70m in CapEx alone.

Instead they opted for a mobile ticketing solution and today over 60% of tickets are sold via the mobile ticketing app.
