Corethree has announced it has deployed a tram m-ticketing solution for Transport for Edinburgh.
Following the success of Lothian Buses’ m-ticketing services in Edinburgh, Corethree has now developed and deployed a solution for the launch of the new Edinburgh Trams. Passengers can now select, purchase and download mobile tickets to their own mobile device in seconds to remove the hassle of finding the right change or queuing for tickets.
Extra security measures have been added to Corethree’s standard m-ticketing solution as tram passengers are required to activate their m-ticket at the tram stop using QR codes before boarding, to assist in ticket inspection.
Stevie Chambers of Transport for Edinburgh, commented “Working in partnership with Corethree, we’ve recently updated our m-ticketing app with new features and a fresh look under the Transport for Edinburgh brand. We’d already seen fantastic adoption of our m-ticketing solution for Lothian Buses in Edinburgh, and the addition of tickets for Edinburgh Trams makes the offering even more attractive – the most convenient and flexible platform for integrated ticketing.”
Richard Stevenson, Product Specialist at Corethree said: “Corethree continue to raise the bar in terms of innovation. We have developed and deployed a tram m-ticketing solution in record time for Transport for Edinburgh to meet the launch of their new tram system. The solution is highly secure and has been specifically enhanced for the introduction of trams in Edinburgh, allowing the passenger to activate their ticket while at the tram stop using QR code technology.”
