Lothian Buses upgrades to smart ticketing
Joint venture company Nevis Technologies is to supply its smart ticketing solutions to UK bus company Lothian Buses, providing a platform of interoperable ticketing products that can be integrated with Lothian Buses’ existing infrastructure. This allows Lothian Buses to offer smart card ticketing which could also be used across other modes of transport, including rail, subway and ferry.
Nevis Technologies is a joint venture company between smart transportation technology provider Rambus and Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) and serves as a delivery agent for smart integrated ticketing in Scotland. Lothian Buses will utilise the same solution used successfully by the Glasgow Subway, Abellio ScotRail and McGill’s, which is based on ITSO, the UK national open standard for smart ticketing.
