Enhance your passengers' experience and boost your ridership

Our ABT with Barcodes solution provides a way to offer accessible, inclusive and flexible ABT to your passengers.

The flexibility of pre-pay and post-pay options gives passengers the benefit of cost-effective ABT – they just need to ‘scan on’ and ‘scan off’ by presenting their barcode on their mobile phone.

With no need to buy a ticket in advance to secure the best fare, passengers benefit from the convenience to board services quickly and easily, safe in the knowledge they will be charged the best value fare for their travel.

Cost-effective and simple to deploy

Save money and administration time with no need to issue or manage smart cards. Passengers just need to download the app and set up their payment details, and they are ready to go. For added convenience, they can set their parameters for automated account top ups via the app or select manual top ups via travel shops (by cash or card).

Get started quickly with our cloud-based platform

All the business logic needed for ABT journey and fare validation and best-fare calculation is hosted in the cloud on our Actora platform. This means it’s fast and simple to deploy in your existing environment, with no need to distribute complex business rules across your ETMs, validators and other devices.

Future-proof your ticketing with our ‘token-agnostic’ capabilities

Our ABT micro-services architecture also future proofs your ticketing with support for any new transit mode, fare type, payment method, or travel token that comes along. This means you can add new tokens for a multi-token solution.
