O-CITY and PT TKDN join forces to roll out Account-Based Ticketing Solution in Indonesia

PT Teknologi Karya Digital Nusa Tbk (PT TKDN) collaborates with O-CITY, the automated fare collection provider by BPC, to develop the first Fleet Management System with Account-Based Ticketing (ABT) in Indonesia. This has reaffirmed the company’s vision to utilize integrated information technology, which include the transportation sector.

This advanced ticketing solution is set to revolutionize Indonesia's transportation infrastructure, expanding PT TKDN’s range of services across all mobility aspects, including transportation (mass public transportation), parking, paid road systems, and toll gate automation. Notably, PT TKDN aims to introduce this sophisticated fare collection solution countrywide, propelling the nation towards becoming a multi-provider of essential city services.

O-CITY's Account-Based Ticketing (ABT) system allows commuters to use a variety of payment methods, including open-loop, closed-loop, QR-code and mobile e-wallets, bringing a new level of convenience to city dwellers. This is the evolution of the fare collection system (tickets), from card-based tickets to account-based that are integrated and personalized. This means that a card ownership can be identified by registering it through a mobile app so that all user transactions can be recorded and documented as well as provide the best fare options according to the user's habits in mobility using public transportation or when using the app.

David Santoso, President Director of PT Teknologi Karya Digital Nusa Tbk explained "This partnership with O-CITY is a pivotal moment for transportation in Indonesia. Implementing the ABT system reflects our unwavering commitment to improving mobility and driving Indonesia's cashless agenda forward. We are really excited about the potential of this project to transform our transportation network, making it more efficient, accessible, and inclusive for everyone."

Tokhir Abdukadyrov, SVP of smart city and transport solutions at BPC: “We firmly believe in PT TKDN’s potential to offer an innovative, modern AFC ABT solution for public transit operators, municipalities, and ministries of transport. It's an initiative that will undoubtedly drive the country's mobility forward, upgrading Indonesia's transportation infrastructure across all spheres - from public transport to parking, toll and beyond. In doing so, we bring commuters closer to a smart city environment. We have absolute confidence in the ambitious PT TKDN team and their ability to develop and provide these advanced solutions and services across Indonesia."

 PT TKDN will also utilize segmentation features such as:

  • Centralized Fare - The system will calculate ticket rates based on some parameters including: customer category, date and time, service operator, transaction quantities during period and others.
  • Prepaid Products/Subscriptions - Users can buy products and use the card as regular payments. The system will automatically recognize prepaid products linked to the identity on the card and record the use of these products according to product rules.
  • Subsidies Distribution - Users registered in the system are also registered in the subscriber profile. Business terms and fare setting will consider the customer profiles, making the process of providing fare discounts (which are usually a subsidy) more efficient and transparent.
  • Travel planning and vehicle tracking - With mobile apps, users can plan trips from point A to point B, track the public transportation on the map, and get information when the fleet arrives.
  • Portals and applications - Help to create more flexible fare rules, manage routes, inventory, provide reports & analysis, able to multi-user and multi-language so as to maintain fleet efficiency.

“The payment system is one that can be improved on the current transportation system. An integrated and personalized system will make it easier not only for the government and operators, but also passengers. Users will have no worry when their card is lost or left behind. They can still use the balance that was previously filled in because everything is recorded by the ABT system in their account," explained David.

The ABT system helps transportation providers switch from the old ticketing system–paper tickets, magstripe tickets, and cash payments–to an integrated and modern transportation payment system that makes trips become seamless. For operators, this system is very beneficial due to lower operational costs, compared to the current payment for urban transport which already uses cashless cards but requires constant reprogramming.

"Currently, the company successfully completed a local deployment for ABT system in several cities and is now ready for a nationwide rollout. We expect that more cities will implement the ABT system in their transportation systems so that we can be one step ahead towards becoming a smart city," concluded David.
