We help you deliver best price options and facilitate a convenient customer-oriented mix of distribution channels.

Core of the fare collection system

With the advent of multi-modal and multi-client fare structures, a powerful back office system is necessary for managing your modern fare system. MOBILEvario provides the most comprehensive set of features for fare management and revenue clearing. It serves as the core intelligence for account-based fare systems. Its open architecture offers the flexibility you need in today’s digital environment.

Points of sale

Easy access to tickets requires a broad range of convenient sales channels. This is especially true for occasional riders. INIT delivers the tools you need for meeting the varied requirements of your passengers. Whether web-based applications, onboard and platform devices, or convenient apps, we make it easy to offer fare collection solutions for the twenty-first century.


19 companies, one ticketing system

Along with the implementation of a regional ITCS system in the German state of Saxony, a complete sales technology upgrade was required by 19 companies of the two public transport associations: the VVO organization for the Oberelbe region, and the ZVON organization for the Oberlausitz-Niederschlesien region. The new INIT solution enables the sale of all tickets for the regions served by both associations. A particular benefit for commuters who use services in both districts. Plus, the equipment supports scanning and reading of electronic tickets. And fare changes can be implemented easily in a matter of hours.
