Giving passengers a ticket to the best experience with the new Urban Mobility Open Payments Forum

In July 2021, UITP launched its Urban Mobility Open Payments Forum. Gathering a selection of payments industry leaders, the new forum follows calls from the transportation sector to create a clearer framework for engaging in a more open dialogue at an international level on open loop payments in public transport. Here, Andrea Soehnchen, Project Manager of the Urban Mobility Open Payments Forum at UITP, shines a brighter light on the forum and why this new collaboration has arrived at the right time.

Giving passengers the best experience with a new payments forum

Those of us who work within public transport often say that ‘people are at the heart of our sector’. And our ‘people’ are the passengers who use the public transport networks in cities across the globe every single day. We are always striving to offer them the very best passenger experience that we can.

By joining forces, we can introduce new advancements for the world of urban mobility to better serve the needs of our passengers”

This can only be achieved if we constantly work towards advancing the sector by embracing new opportunities, developing data and promoting a better understanding of the latest technology. At the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), we regularly collaborate with our international membership to do this – and more. 

By joining forces, we can introduce new advancements for the world of urban mobility to better serve the needs of our passengers with one main aim in mind: making public transport the logical choice for moving around the cities that we call home.
