Global Transit Ticketing & Fare Collection Report 2020

Cities across the world are increasingly focusing on the deployment of advanced fare collection systems, particularly contactless smartcards, bank cards and mobile ticketing, and moving away from traditional fare media such as tickets and tokens.

This shift is driven by an increasing penetration of bank cards and smartphones, increasing public transport ridership, emphasis on integration and interoperability, introduction of new business models in the financial industry to tap the low-value payments market, development of mobile ticketing apps and mobile wallets, and launch of new technologies and innovations. Greater awareness of the benefits of automated fare collection (AFC) systems – improved fare revenue collection, greater operational efficiency and lower costs – has also motivated transit agencies to opt for smart ticketing methods.

To capture the opportunities in the transit ticketing industry, Global Mass Transit Research has launched the fourth edition of the Global Transit Ticketing & Fare Collection Report. The report will provide comprehensive and up-to-date information on the current status of ticketing systems and plans for deployment of advanced fare collection systems including open payments and account-based ticketing (ABT) in 500 cities across the world.

The report will have 3 distinct sections.
