Challenges in local transportation

Contact-based paper tickets without security features will soon be a thing of the past, as they are increasingly being replaced by electronic tickets or mobile solutions such as smartphones. If nothing else, the challenge of ever-larger cities means we have to adapt the current system to be able to handle the growing number of users of local public transportation.

Numerous cities like San Francisco, Melbourne, Beijing, London or Buenos Aires already have electronic systems and millions of people use G&D’s contactless cards in them every day.

The trend is toward smartphones: in the future, NFC-enabled cell phones will ever more frequently function as mobile wallets which allow their owners to pay for and store tickets, and call up information. This is extremely time-saving and practical for users, as cell phones are constant companions for most people. At the same time, systems with contactless tickets meet the growing requirements of transport operators by reducing capital expenditure and maintenance costs.

All together for more openness

Very recently, countless solutions have proven to be neither secure nor flexible enough, failing to meet the latest requirements.

The call for open specifications that are fast, flexible, and cost-efficient to implement while still being secure, is becoming more vocal. The OSPT Alliance, of which G&D is a founding member, is committed to this goal.
