Focused on the topic of ticketing, the STA bundles and represents the political, operational and technical demands of the regional public transport companies, associations and the associated industrial companies.
For example, STA representatives are often heard at the Multimodal Passenger Mobility Forum of the EU Commission, where they present the coordinated position of the members and thus of public transport. This makes the political work more efficient, because it is possible for each public transport company to represent its position in international initiatives with little effort.
Members can also become part of the working groups Account Based Ticketing, Certification, Glossary and Ticketing in Mobility as a Service and thus influence the framework conditions and technical standards of ticketing of the future. As you can see from the example of NFC ticketing in public transport: our papers are taken into account.
