Lead Participant: Tedipay (UK) Ltd

Abstract

MultiPass is an 18 month, collaborative project which will implement an integrated, low-cost multi-protocol smart ticketing & digital uber-wallet platform. MultiPass will provide seamless multi-modal travel for passengers & tourists, together with reduced Opex and increased revenue collection for transit operators. MultPass will integrate several proven technologies (incl. ITSO, EMV, NFC, cloud TVM & BLE) into a single end-to-end platform, which will comprise low-cost, Easy and cheap to install, station-based BLE beacons, cloud-based server/services & passenger-carried form factors. MultiPass will uniquely solve key transit operator & DfT problems: Capex & Opex reduction via remote delivery & validation of ITSO-compliant tickets; improved fare collection, capacity utilisation & customer experience via ‘virtual gating’, ‘cloud TVM’ and 'fares virtualization'.
