Market context & trends.

Since EMV contactless payments were launched in London's transportation system, hundreds of networks have deployed similar fare payment solutions. This technology is now mature and provides obvious benefits. 

EMV open-loop payments reduce operational costs, such as issuing fare media or handling cash.

To accept a payment card, though, a ticketing solution must comply with specific requirements from the banking industry that secure payment data and guarantee trust. Using EMV payment cards also incurs fees and requires a risk management agreement between parties.

We have extensive experience in ticketing and banking systems and can help you introduce open payment solutions.

Major challenges.

  • Selecting payment schemes to be prioritized and understanding their individual acceptance criteria.

  • Defining the strategy to transpose complex fare structures.

  • Understanding risk management for EMV open payments in transit.

  • Assessing the impact PCI compliance on IT systems.

  • Developing technical and business teams to manage new customer care services.
