ITxPT and STA proudly announce the signature of a MoU to develop and promote interoperability between ticketing systems to facilitate the development and deployment of seamless travel in Europe and beyond.

ITxPT and STA are non-profit organisations, both working toward seamless multimodal travel in Europe via interoperability of systems. Their work complements each other as they are both relying on CEN standards and input from their members (from public transit authorities to industry representatives).

Both organisations have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to facilitate their cooperation.

Via this MoU, both organisations will join forces to build and support:

  • Interoperability for smart ticketing systems,
  • Production of functional and technical requirements that encompass all the layers of a ticketing system from its hardware to data exchange,
  • Dissemination and adoption of existing tools and resources that benefit public authorities.

All their common activities and actions will be in the pursuit of realising seamless travel for all passengers by supporting the work of all public authorities in Europe and beyond.

This MoU is for us another step toward fulfilling our mission of informing the standards making process and coordinating how public transport uses them.

I am very satisfied having such a market-driven and reliable input brought to the work that ITxPT undertakes defining open standards and technical specifications for the entire public transport industry.
