Gemalto provides new mobile NFC ticketing service for Keolis

Providing NFC service

Gemalto has announced the selection by Keolis, a major private sector transport group in France, to provide and operate the Allynis Trusted Service Management (TSM) services for the NFC mobile ticketing roll out in the territory of Caen la mer. After a detailed tender process, the Caen urban area transport organization Viacités has decided to offer a new service to bus and tram passengers using the Twisto network managed by Keolis. 

The service went live on June 17, 2013 and passengers using public transport in the city can enjoy transport services simply by using the “Twisto” ticketing application downloaded onto their NFC mobile phones. Registered passengers can purchase tickets directly from their phone or load their subscription. To ride the city’s Twisto bus or tram services, they simply wave their phone in front of a contactless reader to validate the ticket. Regular commuters as well as visitors to the city can use this new service.

 “We selected Gemalto for its long-standing experience in mobile NFC project management and its excellent knowledge of the transit Calypso standard,” said Eric Steil Keolis Caen Director. “This will ensure that we receive the best expertise in provisioning convenient and secure services over the air.”
