Mobile ticketing for Germany’s railways


Hypercom says that three of the major regional rail transit operators in Germany are now using Hypercom’s Artema Modular unattended payment terminals with GPRS to speed ticketing in more than 370 trains serving over 200 million commuters and other travelers per year.

The PCI-approved devices accept both debit and credit cards. The installation was recently completed at key transit hubs served by Abellio, Rheinbahn and Westfalen Bahn-operated trains. Hypercom teamed with leading system integrators Atron Electronic and ICA Traffic.

‘This deployment strengthens our leadership position in self-service technology, our leadership in mobile rail ticketing systems, and brings new levels of speed and convenience to hundreds of thousands of travelers,’ comments Christian J
