Transport Ticketing 2013 ConferenceNorman Baker, MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Transport
opened the event by talking about one of the most exciting projects underway - the South East Flexible Ticketing project (SEFT). This is the first project of its type in uniting South East England under one smart ticket. It is a complex business model involving a number of players such as ATOC and Go-Ahead, with deployment is set to go live for 2015. Although it is a first for the UK, regional ticketing programmes are already in place in other parts of Europe as we heard from DSB in Denmark and Netherlands Railway across the entire train network in the Netherlands.
One of the most exciting draws of the event was the discussion surrounding open-loop bank card ticketing. As TfL launched contactless ticketing on all London buses in December 2012, it was a very timely conversation to understand the steps taken to enable this and feedback so far. The industry is also seeing the foundations being laid in many other cities around the world. The Centre for Budapest Transport in Hungary are conducting some fantastic work in moving contactless from trial to live deployment, likewise in Turkey, Bankalararasi Kart Merkezi is preparing the transport infrastructure in the city of Konya to accept both domestic and international contactless bank cards.Read more

The demands placed by passengers on ticketing and fare collection are changing.
Today’s commuter wants to plan their route to work before they start their journey. The long distance traveller must find the cheapest and fastest trip available. The tourist needs to move easily around the city - from bus to train to underground and the occasional traveller just wants to get home without the hassle of queues.
How are you ensuring that your service meets your passengers’ needs and expectations?
