Best price algorithm and check-out reminder
With the FAIRTIQ app from the company of the same name based in Bern, Switzerland, passengers check in simply by swiping.
The app simplifies ticket purchases and requires no fixed sales/validation infrastructure. When the passenger swipes out at the end of the journey a best price algorithm calculates the optimum ticket for that journey. Using advanced geo-location algorithms, the system computes the distance traveled, including any intermediate changes between rail, bus, subway, tram and boat. The app can be used across borders and includes fraud detection. The system is running across Switzerland covering all types of public transport and all 250 operators. It can also be used in Germany, Austria, and Liechtenstein.
