Bishkek converts to cashless payments.




What's the story?

With a population of approximately 1.2 million, Bishkek is the capital and largest city of the Kyrgyz Republic. The city public transport services are operated jointly by the municipality-owned trolleybus and private bus companies. This fleet includes 300 municipal vehicles and more than 2000 vehicles operated by privately owned minibus operators. 

The municipality wanted to increase transparency of payments on public transport as well as increasing revenues. It identified the strategic benefits of introducing a tried and tested Automated Fare Collection platform and redefining the payment experience for travellers and transport providers across the city. A public tender was released and BPC’s O-CITY smart payment platform was awarded the contract.

public transport with O-CITY


What's the story?

Kazakhstan is considered to be one of the most digitally developed countries in central asia. Penetration of digital assets and services is high and continues to grow thanks to the efforts of the country’s major financial players. The government is also promoting digitisation with its multi-year digital transition plan, which has seen infrastructure and transit system modernisation deliver international smart city services to the people of Kazakhstan.

Following on from the national digital transformation agenda, the municipality of Aktobe developed its own programme to improve the wellbeing of its citizens and increase the level of benefits - with public transport at the core, reflecting its role in the social life of citizens. The journey to simplifying fares and making public transport more accessible started with the search for an automated fare collection partner to create an ecosystem linking the key players - municipality, agents and banks - and delivering a superior experience.
