UrbanThings rolls out Ticketless™ to Ipswich Buses

November 27, 2019


UrbanThings is excited to announce that we’ve launched our smart-ticketing product Ticketless™ to the city of Ipswich. In partnership with Ipswich Buses, Ticketless is now available to the public following a successful beta-launch in the city.

The passenger app which provides real-time information and m-ticketing via QR code validation, is now live on the Ipswich Buses fleet. It allows passengers to purchase tickets on their smartphones, which they then scan upon boarding to validate. The app provides a quick and simple method for passengers to purchase tickets, including period passes. Ipswich Buses will gain access to invaluable data such as live passenger metrics and detailed reporting that identifies under and over-served routes.

Carl Partridge, CEO of UrbanThings said:

“We’re thrilled to be delivering an innovative new passenger app to Ipswich Buses. Our Ticketless™ solution delivers an outstanding passenger experience, putting real-time bus information and m-Ticketing in one place. We’re looking forward to a continued partnership.

Steve Bryce, General Manager of Ipswich Buses said:

“Our company had been looking to develop and launch our own m-ticketing and journey planning app for some time. We are always looking for new ideas to attract and retain customers so having our own app was the next natural step after successfully launching contactless payments. It was important to Ipswich Buses that our app was white labelled and was not a generic product. When we met Carl and his team they were very accommodating and showed a genuine interest in our business and our requirements. They have worked seamlessly with our own team to develop and launch the app.

If you’d like to know more, UrbanThings will be exhibiting at Transport Ticketing Global in January 2020. Alternatively, get in touch and we’ll be happy to demo the Ticketless™ product and speak to you about your smart ticketing solution.
