Ticketing & Payments In-Depth Focus 2018
With technology disrupting almost every area of the transport industry, there are few that have been more affected than the way we pay to travel. The shift to contactless payment methods has been rapid, and growth in mobile payments shows no signs of slowing – find out here how digitalisation has changed ticketing irreversibly and why the transformation is far from finished.
