KeoliTicketing specialist Masabi’s Justride mobile ticketing platform is to be incorporated into Japan’s transit market.
The deal sees Japanese trip planner Jorudan integrating Justride into its transit apps.
The firm will also use the Justride external orders API to deliver tickets to users’ smartphones when purchased through Jorudan’s transit search and travel planner websites.
“The problems that mobile ticketing solves are universal, with transit operators from Kyoto to Kettering wishing to speed up boarding and make the process of buying a ticket simpler.” said Brian Zanghi, CEO of Masabi.
Masabi, which provides Software as a Service ticketing and payments to public transport agencies worldwide, says the first launches in Japan would be announced “in the coming months”.
The two companies will jointly market the ticketing solution to transit operators in Japan.
Uber, Transit, Gertek and Kisio/Keolis are among the firms which have integrated Justride into their own services in other countries.
