Payment services provider Worldline has teamed up with Trapeze to launch a ticket payment solution for public transport that leverages Bluetooth to automatically detect a commuter’s journey.

The new tool integrates Automatic Passenger Presence Detection in Transit services with core Account Based ticketing capabilities.

It utilises the Tap 2 Use solution from Worldline for the account management of a commuter.

On the other hand, the solution supports Bluetooth-based passenger recognition and virtual validations generation with the help of Trapeze’s ComfoAccess facilities.

Using Bluetooth, the payment tool detects commuters as they enter a vehicle.

The solution also utilises transport network data to create check in and check out taps and then applies the best tariff calculation process to handle payments.

“The service delivers a truly seamless journey across all public transport of any city or region and improves operational efficiency for the transport company.”
