ITS and electronic fare collection technology provider, INIT announced its partnership with software company GlobeSherpa for the release of their new, fully-customizable mobile ticketing solution, MOBILEticket.
MOBILEticket is a new smartphone application that helps transit authorities connect with their riders, reduce operating costs and move into the future of open payment systems. With MOBILEticket, riders can easily buy and use their public transit passes from their mobile phone.
MOBILEticket offers an inspector’s app for ticket validation through visually authenticated elements and QR codes or via NFC. The back-end processing system is multi-client capable and allows agencies to track sales and transactions by agency, ticket and rider types; times and zones. In addition, it integrates and processes mobile tickets and smart cards in one easy system.
INIT plans to demonstrate the new ticketing application at the upcoming APTA Fare Collection Workshop being held in Phoenix March 18 to 19.
