A growing number of public transit authorities and operators around the world are enabling their customers to tap credit and debit cards to pay fares. And many in the industry are convinced that nearly all agencies will one day support open loop. But not everyone agrees that the costs and loss of control that open payments entail are worth it.
In the first event of its kind, APSCA and Mobility Payments have invited a panel of experts from among transit authorities and operators, technology suppliers and other industry players–some backing open-loop payments and some sceptical of the technology–to debate the key issues involved.
This is a must-attend event for all transit authorities, operators, ticketing schemes and private mobility providers considering launching open-loop payments. This wide-ranging debate will cover the issues and practicalities of rolling out open-loop payments in transit.
The online debate will run for 90 minutes and consist of: opening introductions; free-flowing discussions and Q&A with webinar participants, including the audience; conclusions with takeaways.
- Opening introductions (15 minutes)
- Free-flowing discussions and Q&A (60 minutes)
- Conclusions and takeaways (15 minutes)
This online debate will be considered a PowerPoint-free zone.
>> Registered participants for the online debate will be able to view a recording of the entire online debate for one month after the debate takes place (until 5 November).
