Vix Technology partnered with the city of Cape Town in 2013 to provide the award-winning MyCiTi ticketing solution to replace paper tickets. Vix implemented an Open Payments system that enabled the use of bank-issued contactless credit cards for travel, providing access to people to previously did not have a bank account. The solution also helped alleviate daily travel delays for Cape Town’s commuters and allowed for fares to be paid in ways other than cash.
