Stadtwerke Verkehrsgesellschaft Frankfurt am Main (VGF)

VGF has been an INIT customer since the 1990s. INIT supplied the hardware and software for its ticketing system in 1997. In 2016, INIT has once again been commissioned to provide a comprehensive technology update for the five transport operators that take care of the city bus service. Each of their buses will be integrated into the new central ticketing system of the infrastructure and sales service provider VGF by April 2018. With the planned system migration, bus transport in Frankfurt will stay up to date.
