Join our working groups

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.

ABT working group

STA 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.
In 2022, an Open Stakeholder Workshop on ABT took place, which presented the first results of the work and findings as well as positive examples.

Now the group is starting Phase 2 with the task of developing a common framework. A Kick-off-Workshop is planned for March 28th. Members who would like to be part of the working group, please contact our Technical Secretary Jaap de Bie.

MaaS working group

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.

Glossary working group

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. In May 2023, the group is planning an online follow up and outlook to keep the members updated.

Certification working group

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.
An open stakeholder workshop certification will take place in Brussels on 4 May. The next regular internal meeting of the Working Group will be held online on May 11. If you are interested in participating, please email the secretary of the working group Jean-Philippe Amiel.

We are currently planning two more working groups: sustainable ticketing working group and data in ticketing working group. Interested? STA members can send experts to the working groups and further develop the topics that are being advanced in the groups at European level.

To become part of one of our working groups your organisation has to become a STA member. By filling out the STA Membership Application Form you can indicate in which working groups you are interested in joining.
