Switch to Switchio – the comprehensive fare collection platform

Tap and go technology makes travel on public transport and paying for parking easier than ever before. Contactless ticketing improves passenger check-in experience and reduces ticket distribution and system operation costs for transport providers. Not surprisingly, secure card payment options on public transport and in parking facilities are on the rise across Europe and the rest of the world. These exciting developments have given the green light to Switchio, the comprehensive fare collection platform from Monet+.
