Joint Workshop with Smartex “Moving to Mobile Payments

February 7, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

ITS United Kingdom and Smartex join to present this timely workshop.

There is a step change for public transport ticketing as we move from smart cards to mobiles. Or is there? The purpose of this workshop is to explore what next for ticketing with an open mind and proper consideration for human factors, technical issues, as well as interoperability and standardisation.

Please come along and contribute your own expertise to an open and productive discussion which will join up knowledge and experience from the operational to the technical ends of the public transport field.
