Developed by the Ixxi teams, a new passenger information is offered by the RATP users to bus and tram through the deployment of NFC tags on the network.
Deploying 13,000 NFC tags on the RATP network 2015
Facilitate the travelers' journey
Currently, six million mobile phones are equipped with NFC (Near Field Communication), 10% of the park, including about 2 million in the Ile- de-France. All new mobiles now have it. After, having spent his phone before the NFC tag, the user accesses the waiting time of the next two buses or trams stop for all the serving lines. The line numbers and directions are clearly specified and the entire route is displayed with a click on the chosen line. The traveler can also be oriented in the area and locate the nearby transport services. The route search also remains possible; the aim being to provide real-time information, more complete and customized to facilitate travel.
In testing on the bus line 24 and tram T2 since October 2014, this service will be gradually extended to 13,000 points of bus and tram RATP by the end of the first quarter 2015. The group put on an innovative technology with great potential for development of new services . To learn more
