The announcement of Unicard’s acquisition of smart ticketing specialist Ecebs from Visa has received widespread coverage across transport, technology and other business publications.
The transaction will enable Unicard to offer a more comprehensive range of solutions in the UK and abroad.
The move sees Unicard add contactless EMV technology to its already extensive solutions portfolio, comprised of an industry-leading smart ticketing platform supporting both commercial and concessionary fare schemes, alongside its suite of ITSO, ABT (Account Based Ticketing), MaaS (Mobility-as-a-Service), and rail ticketing solutions.
Contactless EMV, which allows passengers to tap in and out using a payment card, will increase Unicard’s ability to respond to the smart mobility needs of local authorities and transport operators, helping to deploy services across trains, buses, e-Scooters and other forms of transport.
