Conduent have launched its Conduent Seamless™ Transportation Solution, its next-gen approach to secure ticketless public transport payment by smartphone. The launch follows a successful nine-month pilot of the technology with the local transport authority Valence Romans Déplacements (VRD), in the city and area of Valence, in south-eastern France.
Operators simply install Near Field Communication (NFC) tags provided by Conduent on their transport network. The user downloads the app onto their NFCenabled smartphone and registers with Seamless to activate their account. To travel they simply tap their smartphone on any Seamless NFC tag. During the tap the tag creates and stores an encrypted transaction and relays it to the smartphone. Billing is processed automatically at the end of the month, based on the number of trips completed on the various transport providers.
Strategies and policies
The EU works with cities and regions to develop a sustainable urban mobility policy, including efficient public transport systems and good connectivity throughout their home country.
It also strives to improve the quality of life in cities by promoting active mobility solutions, such as walking and cycling, and by ensuring good accessibility for residents and commuters.
The partnership on urban mobility aims to improve the framework conditions for urban mobility across the EU.
This Future ITS Strategy frames Transport Scotland’s agenda for trunk roads and
motorway ITS over the next ten years and beyond. It is aligned with Scotland’s
Strategic Priorities and the overall National Transport Strategy outcomes to deliver a
safe and efficient network, inclusive, sustainable economic growth, embrace
innovative solutions and to be customer focused.
