VdV eTicket Service
Modern public transit tickets
“We open up new eTicket distribution channels that will attract new users that are not current VDV eTicket holders” Dr. Joseph Lutgen, Chief Scientist at VDV eTicket Service
Fidesmo opens up for modern public transit tickets. Frankfurt, Hamburg, and Berlin are among the 12 regions where VDV eTicket Service is represented and VDV eTicket Service wants all to be opened up for the ticketing of the future.
Fidesmo has, as a world’s first, signed a platform provider agreement with German VDV eTicket Service. This will make it possible to use all Fidesmo enabled devices and cards in public transit systems that follow the VDV eTicket Service specifications, which in turn opens up the possibility to use your watch, your bracelet or USB dongle as ticket holder.
The platform enables new types of partnerships and completely new constellations where companies that today issue their own cards or smart devices can, through this cooperation, host public transit tickets. Everything collected at the same place.
Consumers choose ultimately for themselves if they want to have tickets on a physical card or for instance on smarter watches, bracelets or other devices.
