Contactless Payments

Ridango’s ticketing solutions support contactless payments, simply tapping open-loop contactless bank cards (cEMV) directly at validators. Pay-As-You-Go by EMV card is the best way to access public transport for occasional travelers, as there is no need to wonder where and how to buy a ticket, its cost, or even the type of ticket to buy. Ridango’s EMV solution is also PCI-DSS certified, granting travelers that their transactions and card data are secure.

Value created
Great environmental impact from using contactless bank card to replace a plastic transit card and avoid manufacturing the latter in large quantities. Financial gain for the authority and/or operator – because of an ease of ticket purchase, occasional travellers will more likely choose public transport instead of taxi or other services, which brings more people to public transport and increasing ticketing revenue.
