German transport operator Transdev
and IVU Traffic Technologies
have signed a framework agreement to provide an integrated ticketing system for Transdev’s 43 subsidiaries, including 27 bus transport operators.
The new framework agreement aims to harmonise the Transdev Group’s fare management as a whole and improve the management of vehicle data in the company’s AVL system.
Under the agreement, Transdev subsidiaries will receive the IVU.suite for handling all ticket sale activities: ranging from IVU.fare for settlement and fare management to the IVU.ticket.box on-board computer for selling tickets in the vehicle. The computer serves as a vehicle environment interface and gathers all data and transfers it to the IVU.fleet data hub, which then feeds the data to the central AVL system at Transdev. The entire on-board system is fully compatible with IBIS-IP and can already be used for e-ticketing.
