Transportation Ticketing Technologies

Research Service

Contactless ticketing was one of the first markets to utilize contactless technology on a mass scale. To date, the ticketing market has largely been dominated by proprietary solutions such as MIFARE, Calypso, and FeliCa, leaving the market fragmented with no specified international standard or specifications.

Deployments remain largely completed on a local city level, rather than country specific, leaving further fragmentation and a lack of consistency. Recent market developments have led to increased attention to new ticketing solutions, paving the way for the possible beginnings of an international standard in the form of EMV, NFC, and new specifications set out by the OSPT for an open standards solution.
