Operators can set:
  • Entry and exit billing
  • One-time billing with an inspector
  • One-time billing when buying a ticket
  • Tariffication of travel for a month or a long period of time
  • Tariffication by the number of trips
  • Tariffs based on the user's social segment, subsidised tariffs
  • Zonal tariffication

Flexible choice for passengers

mobile validator

Mobile validator

Passengers can pay for the journey using a portable validator, which is held by the inspector or conductor to validate the ticket.

mobile application user

Mobile application

Passengers can use a mobile application to purchase an electronic travel ticket for a journey and then use the cheque or barcode to validate it with the terminal or with the conductor or inspector.



Passengers can use turnstiles to validate the journey, by tapping a card on it on the entry point and the point of final destination.

QR codes


To accept payment, the system generates a unique QR code for the user within their mobile application, which is either scanned at the turnstile validator, the portable validator of by the train conductor or inspector.

Closed Loop card

Closed loop cards

The platform can be configured to accept both open loop cards (bank-type payments) and closed-loop payments (special cards, transport cards, loyalty cards). This means that payments can also be made using a card issued by the transport provider.



Passengers have the option to purchase e-tickets in self-service kiosks, through agent networks or through operator terminals and cashiers.
