The adoption of smart cards as an alternative to paper and magnetic stripe tickets continues to increase. Deployments such as Oyster in London and Octopus in Hong Kong illustrate the success of smart card-based ticketing systems for both transport operators and passengers. Despite the popularity of physical smart cards, the smart ticketing space is steadily evolving as transport operators introduce new payment and travel options for NFC-enabled smartphones. Host card emulation (HCE), which offers the same ‘shopper-friendly’ experience consumers have come to expect from their smartphones in a retail environment, is a key driver of mobile technology in the public transportation sector. This eBook explores the benefits of HCE mobile ticketing for transport operators seeking to modernize their fare systems.
