eTicketing with NFC and Multi-Application Card - the Status Quo and Future Innovations at RFID tomorrow 2015

Local public transport is leading the use of NFC-enabled smartphones in everyday life

Every year, about 10 billion passengers use the local public transport in Germany, with the public transport companies earning ten to eleven billion Euros from fares. Two billion Euros of this revenue is already generated by selling eTickets. So, a huge share of the population, as well as tourists and business travelers, use RFID-technology – some of them daily.

Standards push forward eTicket growth

With the VDV core application (VDV-KA), the Verband Deutscher Verkehrsunternehmen (VDV; Association of German Transport Companies) created an open data and interface standard for eTicketing for fare management in the public transport sector. With this standard, the implementation of eTicket solutions for transport associations and companies is much easier.

eTicketing will increase the acceptance of mobile and contactless solutions

The user and revenue figures for eTicket use in local public transport in Germany are impressive. This is reason enough for the highly service-orientated German transport associations to provide their customers with greater comfort. The focus of attention is on the usage of the eTickets on NFC-enabled smartphones, the connection of mobile ticket systems in Germany, as well as innovations such as “in and out capture”.

The chance of users automatically using their NFC-smartphone in other scenarios increases when the smartphone becomes people’s normal ticket for their travel to work, to the gym, to medical appointments, or to the supermarket. Many experts are convinced of this, which they will describe in the lectures at the RFID Tomorrow’s Forum 4.

In local public transportation, there is no way around NFC and RFID

Nils Conrad, Head of the Eletronic Fare Managment NRW competence center (KCEFM), will describe the broad potential of eTicketing in connection with innovative technologies and solutions in his lecture entitled “The future of ticketing in the public transport sector is contactless and mobile”. In cooperation with partners, various projects in the public transport sector are currently being pushed forward in order to combine the connection of mobility services with multiple other services. In this environment, RFID and NFC are the basis for quick and secure authentication.

One card for everything: multi-application cards are part of the mobile future!

Philipp Egner, Segment Manager – Access & Transport, exceet Card Group, presents a recently implemented project in which a “one card for everything” concept was successfully realized in a major German city in his lecture at RFID Tomorrow entitled “Smart card for payment, car sharing, and authentication in the ‘Stuttgart Services’ project that is unique in Europe”. Interested participants can learn what benefits this solution brought not only regarding user comfort, but also for the environment, on 29th September in Forum 4 of RFID tomorrow.
