Thales says it has now delivered an account-based ticketing (ABT) solution in Jakarta, Indonesia, following the award of a contract last year.
The company is part of a consortium led by Jatelindo Perkasa Abadi and including Lyko and Aino Indonesia which was given an eight-year deal to implement an electronically-integrated payment and tariff system for public transportation operators working in the Jabodetabek megapolitan area.
Essentially, this is Greater Jakarta, including several other cities, and taking in a population of more than 31 million people.
The project is part of the Indonesian central government's commitment to digitalise the public transport system.
Thales' Transcity platform is at the heart of the ABT solution and is able to interface with the Fello e-money settlement system by Jatelindo, Lyko's MaaS platform and Aino's mobile app.
In the first phase of the project, Thales provided a new QR code ticketing system for fare collection with the capability to handle five million transactions daily.
“We are excited with the prospects in Indonesia for ticketing and we are proud to contribute to the digitalisation of transportation for the country," says Olivier Rabourdin, country director, Thales in Indonesia.
The consortium says it supports Jakarta’s transportation master plan to increase the share of public transportation use of all movements to 60% and expand its coverage area of all roads to 80% in Greater Jakarta by 2029.
