INIT unveils world first virtual smartcard at IT-TRANS

At the trade fair, INIT will be presenting innovative smart ticketing solutions based on ID-based ticketing, Open Payment and mobile payment schemes.

In July 2017, the revolutionary electronic fare management system Hop Fastpass™ went live with the Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet) in Portland. For the first time, users of local public transport can enjoy the benefits of account-based fare management, incorporating best price options, and Open Payment.

Back in September 2017, the system was expanded to include the virtual bank card and credit card payment options via Android Pay, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay. This means that passengers can enjoy the benefits of Open Payment using EMV processing, while still benefiting from the best day-to-day price calculation function provided by the initial smartcard version.
