Worldline, Trapeze launch payment solution for public transport

Monday 10 June 2019 11:00 CET | News

Worldline and Trapeze have developed a payment solution that allows passengers using public transport to pay for their ticket by automatically detecting their journey using Bluetooth.

The system operates by detecting passengers via Bluetooth when they enter any public transport vehicle. From these detections, combined with transport network data, check in and check out taps are created in order to obtain the whole passenger journey.

Tariff calculation including fee capping functionalities is applied to finally trigger the related payment using passenger account information. Passengers are able to check their journey and fare at any time via the solution’s mobile app.

The hands-free ticket payment solution is the result of combining automatic passenger presence detection in transit services with account-based ticketing functionalities. The service has been made possible using Worldline’s Tap 2 Use solution to handle the journey processing and the passenger’s account management and Trapeze’s ComfoAccess facilities to manage Bluetooth-based automated passenger recognition and virtual validations generation.
