Mobility as a Service

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) takes the integration of transport systems to another level, with the focus on passenger mobility. Vix Technology’s solution places companies and operators at the center of the MaaS ecosystem by incorporating both public and private transport services, information, payment, and ticketing into a single digital platform. Our solutions are universal and provide native support for all ticket and product types. We offer flexible and intelligent solutions, and support complex multi-operator and provider systems.

Mobile Ticketing

Mobile Ticketing integrates fare media into a single wallet. This gives passengers quick access to their accounts, tickets, and travel passes. Passengers can purchase fares, access live transit information, obtain receipts, and more through mobile applications. Consumers value the ability to purchase tickets directly from their phone. These applications also give passengers real-time data, providing the needed information to choose the best routes.
