Keolis, a world leader in shared mobility and a pioneer in the development of public transport, announces a strategic partnership with Famoco, the leader in secure professional devices

A partnership to accelerate Mobile Ticketing


By 2020, nearly 23 billion transport tickets will be purchased via mobile handsets, according to Juniper Research . By entering into this partnership, Famoco, the leader in secure professional terminals,  and Keolis, a world leader in shared mobility and pioneer in the development of public transport, aim to accelerate the digitization of transport tickets and mobile ticketing.

This strategic partnership will focus on the development of a new generation of ticket validator. This new tool, more cost-effective and easier to install, will be able to read any dematerialized ticket on a smartphone via barcodes or NFC  technology, and to validate the transport cards currently in use. The result will be a significant reduction in operational costs and greater ease of use.


A first use case in France in the city of Orléans

This new ticket validator is in pilot phase on the public transport network of Orléans Métropole, in collaboration with Keolis Orléans Val de Loire in France and Masabi, a UK based partner of Keolis on 2D barcode technology. General rollout is planned for the first half of 2018.

Laurent Kocher, Executive Director of Marketing, Innovation and Services at Keolis declared: "Our partnership with Famoco is an important milestone in our «PlanBookTicket » digital strategy, supported by our subsidiary Kisio Digital. The aim is to give each traveler the best route information, with multimodal route options, and the possibility of purchasing and validating tickets in a totally dematerialized way on their mobile. Thanks to Famoco and Masabi, members of our start-up partners ecosystem, we offer innovative, robust and very competitive solutions to our customers, Transportation Authorities, enabling them to deploy mobile ticketing across the whole transportation network."

Lionel Baraban, Co-Founder and CEO Famoco said : "This new generation of ticket validator improves the travel experience and lowers operational costs in a highly secure environment. Our partnership combines the market knowledge and transport ecosystem of Keolis with our technological expertise and agility. For us, it is a major opportunity to accelerate the deployment of our technology in the transportation market. "
