Ticketing, an integral and fundamental part of MaaS (Mobility as a Service), must combine all mobility services to offer passengers a homogeneous and simple transport offer. Designing or renewing a ticketing system nowadays means choosing between a wide range of technologies, architectures, customer media: NFC or QR code, card-centric or server-centric, prepaid or post-paid are important issues. But experience shows that the real effectiveness of ticketing depends above all on flexibility and the ability to meet new needs over the entire lifetime of the system. Without scalability and flexibility to evolve, ticketing cannot be an effective enforcement tool for mobility policies.
