Fujitsu Australia and Masabi are joining forces to deliver public transport ticketing and payment in Australia and New Zealand. 
The two companies say they have launched their first joint customer solution for an unnamed transport operator with deployments across the two countries, which will see account-based ticketing and contactless EMV delivered this year.

Fare Payments-as-a-Service (FPaaS) specialist Masabi provides the software platform, while Fujitsu has a regional payments footprint.
“FPaaS is revolutionising public transport around the globe, with an ever-growing list of Masabi customers benefiting from reduced cost and better functionality, making taking the train, bus, ferry, subway or tram simpler for their passengers,” said Brian Zanghi, CEO of Masabi.

Masabi’s Justride platform, in use in nine countries with 100 agencies, allows companies such as Uber, Moovit, Jorudan and Transit to add ticketing for public transport into their existing mobility apps. 

“The combination of cloud technology and the software-as-a-service approach is radically changing the world of transportation payments and ticketing,” said Dave Lennon, head of industry, public sector, Fujitsu Australia.
