Masabi and Jorudan, Japan’s leading trip planning service, signed a partnership agreement to bring mobile ticketing to the Japanese transit market and integrate their best-of-breed services to deliver a seamless passenger experience.
Under the terms of the deal, Jorudan will integrate the Justride mobile ticketing SDK into its transit apps, meaning once an operator signs up to the service, tickets will be available in the application. The Japanese company will also use the Justride External Orders API to deliver tickets to users smartphones when purchased through Jorudan’s Norikae Annai (Transit Route Search) website and Japan Transit Planner website. The two companies will jointly market the ticketing solution to transit operators, which will also include Masabi’s Justride Inspect ticket validation solutions.
Masabi’s Justride SDK is the first and only mobile ticketing SDK for public transport. It allows third party applications to request fare types, make payments, and deliver visual and barcode mobile tickets to passengers through a secure ticket wallet. A number of partners worldwide have integrated the SDK to sell tickets via existing apps or to launch new services, including Uber, Transit, Gertek, and Kisio/Keolis.
Masabi is a global pioneer for transit mobile ticketing, and with over 50 clients across four continents the Justride Mobility Platform is the most widely deployed end-to-end mobile and account-based ticketing solution in operation, serving customers of all sizes, from the largest agency in the U.S. to the smallest bus operator.
