Nevis Technologies Supplies Lothian Buses With Smart Ticketing Solutions

Platform Technology , IT Innovations

Nevis Technologies today announced that it will deliver its smart ticketing solutions to Lothian Buses, the UK’s largest publicly owned bus company.

Nevis Technologies, the joint venture company between Rambus, a leader in smart technology for transportation, and Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT), Scotland’s largest regional transport partnership, serves as a delivery agent for smart integrated ticketing in Scotland. Lothian Buses will utilize the same solution used successfully by the Glasgow Subway, Abellio ScotRail and McGill’s, which is based on ITSO, the UK national open standard for smart ticketing.

Nevis Technologies will deliver a platform of interoperable ticketing products that can be integrated with Lothian Buses’ existing infrastructure to provide a foundation that enables new ticketing technologies for its passengers. This allows Lothian Buses to offer smart card ticketing which could also be used across other modes of transport, including rail, subway and ferry.

“Lothian Buses has long been a pioneer of smart ticketing, launching Scotland’s first transport smart card product back in 2001,” said Nigel Serafini, Commercial Director at Lothian Buses. “Our partnership with Nevis Technologies will enable us to develop a ticketing platform that will ultimately deliver more convenient ticketing options for our customers moving forward. They have successfully delivered for rail, ferry and bus operators in Scotland and, as a key technical innovator in the smart ticketing market, are well placed to support our technical roadmap requirements both now and in the future.”

“The implementation of interoperable ticketing offers a truly seamless multi-model travel experience for the public, and the adoption of our solutions by Lothian Buses takes us a step closer to making this possible across Scotland,” said David Braddock, Director of Nevis Technologies. “Our mission is to deliver more value-added services to the transport ecosystem and all its users.”

Deployment of the new system is expected to begin this year.
