The Urban Mobility Open Payment Forum is an initiative of UITP bringing together key players from across the public transport ecosystem, including operators, payment schemes and technology providers to help advance open loop payment in public transport.

Forum members, including Visa, American Express, Google Pay and various tech partners, will be happy to see you for a coffee and answer all your burning questions!

Changing the landscape with Open Loop Payments

Public transport operators and authorities were already shifting towards contactless payment systems, but with the pandemic, this has now accelerated new adoptions in contactless, mobile ticketing and open loop systems. Open loop payment allows passengers using any payment card or app to pay for their journey without having to register in advance.

In this workshop, panelists from UITP’s Urban Mobility Open Payments Forum will highlight benefits and challenges of open loop payments along with lessons from different cities.

11 May 15.30 – 16.30
