Account Based Ticketing

Actora ABT puts an end to the frustrating process passengers often face when calculating the most cost-effective ticket for their planned journeys, over the day or week.  With ABT, passengers just need to ‘tap on’ and ‘tap off’ using their secure token such as a mobile phone or contactless bank card. 

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.  

Please view our new ABT white paper to help you navigate your journey to ABT success.
