Masabi announced the first two deployments of mobile ticketing using the JustRide SDK, the world’s first mobile ticketing Software Development Kit (SDK) for the transport industry, used first by Keolis and its digital subsidiary, Kisio. “Plan-Book-Ticket” by Keolis is available now for bus and tram passengers in Orleans, France, after Montargis went live in January 2017. The SDK allows Masabi’s strategic partner Keolis to incorporate mobile ticketing into existing travel information, booking, and planning apps, greatly improving the travel experience in these cities.
“Plan-Book-Ticket” incorporates market leading visual and barcode-based mobile ticketing and validation technology from Masabi’s award-winning JustRide Platform. It allows French public transport agencies to create fully-integrated, custom branded, ticketing, and trip planning applications. Orleans has also deployed Masabi’s JustRide Inspect Validator across the tram network, which allows passengers to scan their mobile tickets after they board.
The JustRide SDK allows an integrated app to manage payment, request fare types, and deliver visual and barcode tickets to a passenger through the ticket wallet. The SDK communicates with Masabi servers to understand complex fare tables and manages the ticket, its lifecycle, and security. Operators using the SDK will also have access to the JustRide Hub, from where they can access a wealth of back-office data including real-time sales, usage and validation information, reporting, and an extensive customer services and asset management interface.
Masabi’s mobile ticketing technology is already in use with more than 25 transport operators world-wide, including; New York’s MTA, Transport for Athens, Boston’s MBTA, National Express Bus, Las Vegas RTC, Los Angeles Metrolink and HTM The Hague.
