Mobile NFC promises to put passengers in control, reducing stress and making travelling by public transport a more pleasurable experience.


This easy-to-use contactless technology, combined with mobile connectivity, makes it straightforward for passengers to modify their travel plans on the move.


Passengers will simply buy a travel ticket online, download it to their handset and then validate it with one tap on their way into the station: No more queuing to buy tickets.


Equipped with a mobile NFC handset, Europeans will ultimately be able to travel across their continent, moving swiftly and seamlessly from one transport network to another.


Robust mobile NFC services will depend on a strong ecosystem and collaboration across the value chain. It is crucial that transport operators, mobile operators and their partners fully understand each other’s requirements and the benefits these services can bring.
