Ticketing in MaaS

Mobility as a Service is an approach to replace mobility and transport with own vehicles with a range of different mobility services tailored to demand. This can include, for example, public transport, car sharing, carpooling, bike sharing and scooter sharing. Today, customers can choose several mobility options when they travel to their destinations. The choice of alternatives has put ticketing back at the center of attention. All the business partners involved need a trusted ticketing scheme in order to be assured to get revenue out of the services provided.

In collaboration with the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), the STA is actively engaged in defining and advancing MaaS initiatives. A notable milestone of our collaboration with UITP occurred in July 2022, with the joint publication of the Handbook on Ticketing in Mobility as a Service.

The purpose of this document is to deliver an integrated view on high-level implementation and to guide authorities and operators on how they can integrate the new technologies with existing transport systems or infrastructures and services.

The STA advocates for the adoption of standard-based and open contactless ticketing technologies to facilitate the smooth implementation of MaaS schemes, enhance access to common nation-wide and trans-border sustainable mobility alternatives.

Furthermore, our partnership with the MaaS Alliance brings us closer to realizing the vision of seamless mobility services, benefiting travelers worldwide.

Through our steadfast commitment to collaboration, innovation, and advocacy, the STA remains committed to advancing the future of Mobility as a Service, ensuring accessible, efficient, and sustainable transportation solutions for all. For this, the STA stands for the adoption of standard-based and open contactless ticketing technologies in order to allow for a faster adoption of the MaaS schemes and make it easier to access to possibly sustainable mobility services. From our neutral position, we advocate for trust in the ticketing eco-system and we see that the business partners involved need at first to start developing this agreed trusted framework approach allowing for a successful and non-discriminatory operation of their services.

Therefore one of our partners is the MaaS Alliance. Our liaison brings travellers a step closer to seamless mobility services.
