The ticketing solutions of INIT are becoming increasingly widespread internationally in public transport. One of the five largest British public transport providers has now opted for a solution from INIT.
National Express West Midlands, which is based in Birmingham, has awarded a contract to INIT for the supply and installation of a ticketing system. The contract covers equipping 1,600 buses with driver consoles, on-board computers/ticket printers and passenger terminals as well as the service provision via a hosted back-office system. In addition to fast ITSO card-based transactions, the solution enables the use of contactless bank cards for ticket payments in accordance with the EMV standard.
Winning National Express West Midlands as a new customer not only represents a further important milestone for INIT but also leads to further expansion of INIT’s presence in the UK. INIT is already well established in the East Midlands region close to Birmingham. Transport operators in and around Nottingham and Derby have also opted for INIT as a technology partner in the area of ticketing and fare management.
