Marius Macku, Uber

Getting around town should be seamless.

It’s one of the reasons why Uber was founded in the first place, so that you could push a button and get a ride from A to B. Over time we realised that this could have the added benefit of helping people shift away from private car ownership, and so help reduce the congestion, pollution and wasted space on parking in our cities...

Kevin Ayton, Future Ticketing Technical Advisor at Great Western Railway

Kevin Ayton The barcode contains details of the journey or journeys purchased. The barcode is created when the ticket is issued, and then printed or sent to a mobile phone.  It is encrypted to reduce the risk of fraudulent modification, and decoded by the barcode reader when validating the ticket. When the barcode is on a phone, the ticket may need to be ‘activated’ before it can be presented for validation – this is much the same as choosing a paper ticket in your wallet to insert into a gate...

Richard Moore, Solutions Manager at Rambus Ecebs

Richard Moore Interview  

The UK witnessed the launch of its first host-card-emulation (HCE)-based mobile ticketing system earlier this year. The announcement generated significant media interest, but why? Using mobile phones for ticketing is something that we have been speaking about for years, so what is so special about HCE?

We spoke with Richard Moore, Solutions Manager at Rambus Ecebs, and the HCE technology provider in the UK’s first HCE pilot, to get a preview into the presentation he will deliver at on 24 January called “HCE Ticketing is a game changer”. Here he explains why HCE really is a ‘game changer’ and the long-term impact it will have on the industry as a whole.

Miki Szikszai, CEO at Snapper


Snapper's experience comes from abstracting the complexity of existing proprietary ticketing systems so that that they can easily integrate into modern technologies, with a clear focus on smartphones.  This is particularly important given the expectations that existing ticketing systems will need to endure for some time yet remain flexible to integrate with other systems. We expect that MaaS solutions will be based on complex integrations of journey planning, ticketing and payments, and will demand new business models. Snapper's experience and approach will be critical to enabling MaaS solutions to be deployed in markets where they rely on integration with the existing ticketing system.

Andrew Hartnett , Associate Director of NTT DATA  

There is a growing trend towards ticketing systems being enablers for customers to choose how they wish to identify themselves to the system. Be it via a smartcard, credit card, office pass, phone, Bluetooth, bio metrics, and so on. The inclusion of ticketing within the broader transport eco system is also an enhancement that is growing.

There is also a shift from “Card is King” systems where fare calculation and the source of truth is on the customers card and the devices installed on the system – to account based solutions as a continuing trend.

Geert, Vanbeveren, Director, Business, Development, Siemens  

In the past the equation often read: Mobility = private car.
Nowadays the traffic situation in many urban areas does not allow this equation to work anymore.

Thus alternative transport modes need to meet the same level of comfort, flexibility and reliability as individual cars: Ticketing needs to be simple, passenger information reliable and relevant in time and place, connections made easy.
