Switchio Transport

The comprehensive platform for contactless EMV ticketing in public transport

Switchio Transport

Contactless ticketing improves passenger experience, reduces operating costs for transport providers, and helps make public transport greener.

How it works

Passengers tap their contactless EMV bankcards, smartphones and other devices on validators found in stations and the system calculates the most advantageous fare based on level of usage. Switchio’s payment switch then optimizes payment transfers between transport providers and acquirers/payment processors.
