Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) are extolling the virtues of contactless bankcard ticket payments at the 9th Transport Ticketing Global conference in London.
The event, Transport Ticketing, is the world’s largest public transport gathering, bringing together key industry players from the intelligent ticketing, passenger and smart cities industries and is held in London this week.
John Hill, senior account director for London Hill explains how contactless allows users to just tap and go, without the need for smart cards or top-up and that London’s system processes more than three million contactless taps per day. During his presentation, Hill will provide insights into the adoption of contactless bankcard payments based on data analysis from the London system over the past 12 months. He will also address the payment system as part of a wider ticketing strategy, as well as the technology, lessons learned and challenges.
