The STA develops, agrees and ensures the publication of the functional and technical requirements for smart ticketing interoperability. It works with all relevant stakeholders to establish trust schemes, specifications and certification as trust is key for sustainable solutions in integrated mobility ticketing beyond borders.
This we do in our working groups where every STA member can participate - for example by sending selected experts.
In Smart Ticketing Alliance, partners work on a common vision with regard to account-based ticketing to propose a level playing field scenario that would allow for acting as a reference for policy makers to avoid fragmented implementations of account-based ticketing in Public Transport.
When it comes to the definition of Mobility as a Service, we share the position with International Association of Public Transport (UITP). In July 2022 we have already jointly published a handbook on Ticketing in Mobility as a Service. Currently, the joint working group Ticketing in MaaS working group is working on another position paper aimed at transport operators, the industry and policy makers.
The Glossary has been produced so that persons who have experience in the Public Transport Ticketing Industry use terms with the same meaning and avoid different interpretation of terms and misunderstanding. On the other hand persons who are new to the Public Transport Ticketing Industry have ready access to a document that explains, with the source of the term where appropriate, the meaning used generally within the industry.
The objective of the working group is to establish a common approach to conformity certification and the technical equivalence of certification carried out by the group members.
