Every public transport user in Germany is familiar with the problem: you have to purchase a specific ticket for each city and each transport association. This makes travelling by bus or train complicated and less attractive. Mobile ticketing can provide a solution. However, it is often the case here too that you have to register specifically with each provider. Passengers that frequently commute between different regions need to have a dozen or so apps with separate passwords on their mobile phones. This is then followed by a billing procedure that is not easy to understand.
One stress-free ticketing app
HandyTicket Deutschland relieves passengers of this stress. Just one app gives you blanket access to the tickets of around 50 partners from transport associations across Germany. Your billing is also completely transparent and available to you in whatever mode you choose. And if the transport association allows it, with a "best price guarantee".
The sign-up of the millionth registered user highlights the success story of HandyTicket Deutschland as what is now the leading mobility platform. It is continuously extending its coverage. SNG Suhl/Zella-Mehlis, TriRegio in the border triangle, Hofbus in Hof, Hamburger Verkehrsverbund HVV and Karlsruher Verkehrsverbund KVV will be added shortly.
The advantages for the HandyTicket Deutschland partners are obvious: You do not have to make any high initial investments, a fair and transparent commission model is in place, you retain sovereignty over all customer data, your offerings provide you with access to one million users at present, you can integrate any number of multi-modal offers such as car or bike sharing as well as combination deals such as parking tickets, refuelling options, concert tickets or leisure cards.
"HandyTicket Deutschland is thus the most comprehensive mobility platform for public transport in Germany. Together with our additional system components and experience in ticketing projects in countries as diverse as Finland, the UK, Australia and the US, we can offer our customers and their passengers real added value. We make ticketing smart and are therefore on track to set ourselves apart as a system partner and full-services provider for fares and payment management with transport associations and companies worldwide," summarises Jürgen Greschner.
