Account Based Ticketing for UK ITSO schemes
Account Based Ticketing (ABT) for ITSO is a straightforward way for ITSO scheme operators to deploy ABT by leveraging their existing ITSO smart-ticketing infrastructure.
Many UK transport operators and authorities have invested in an ITSO certified infrastructure to create a more convenient and joined up transport service for passengers. Passengers need to load their ITSO token with tickets, for the day or week, before they travel.
ABT for ITSO is a model of ticketing that leverages existing infrastructure to offer convenient and flexible ticketing for regular, ad-hoc and occasional travellers. It removes the hassle of buying and loading tickets in advance, giving passengers more reasons to use public transport.
With ABT for ITSO, passengers just need to ‘tap on’ and ‘tap off’ using their ITSO token to secure the best value fare for the journeys and are charged automatically after they travel.
