Lurraldebus, the Spanish intercity public transport service operating in Gipuzkoa province, has launched a mobile ticketing service based on Masabi's Justride SDK platform. The solution is available in Spanish, English and Euskera and is intended to provide riders with a simple method for buying tickets.
The LurTicket system allows passengers to download an app, developed by technology company Gerktek, which can be used to purchase tickets. Riders present the pass as an encrypted barcode to bus drivers.
Initially, the service will be available on long distance lines with 70 buses which includes the route from Bilbao Airport to Donostia/San Sebastian resort town in the Bay of Biscay.
Justride SDK manages the fare tables, payments and full ticket life cycle. Bus drivers scan the ticket barcodes using Masabi’s Inspect, an application available on Android and Apple smartphones and handheld devices.
