2015 Budapest Smart Ticketing & Transportation Forum

On the 3rd of July 2015 the first Budapest Smart Ticketing and Transport Forum with more than 60 participants was held with great success.

With a large focus on Hungary the participants got first hand information and project milestones from representatives from Budapest, Szolnok and other places. With more than 60 million Euro to be spent the BKK project is currently one of the biggest in Europe. The Budapest project implementation will receive in the years to come much attention. The sharing of experiences like the one of Szolnok public transport gave participants a wide range of useful insights. The event highlighted as well the importance of standards, security and European initiatives like the Smart Ticketing Alliance. Experiences and set ups in Israel, Germany and Belgium allowed to get a view on how to solve interoperability on a national level. Sharing different views on EMV, multiapplication cards, future digitalisation of ticketing services and hardware components completed the set of themes of the 2015 edition of the Budapest Forum. As small exhibition space gave the possibility to get some live demonstration of equipment. We thank our sponsors Scheidt & Bachmann, Ingenico, Rukon and CNA for their precious contribution.

Smile in the city

The UITP congress and exhibition took place in Milan from June 8th to June 10th. As usual, Calypso Networks Association was present with a booth to welcome all visitors interested by Calypso.

They were very numerous during these three days, transport operators and authorities, manufacturers to come and visit our stand where they discovered the most recent possibilities of Calypso, with demonstration of mobile ticketing applications: U’Go which is operational in Strasbourg with CTS and the solution proposed by SIA and Telecom Italia Mobile, with the support of major Italian transport authorities. It was also the opportunity to see our new videos about the CNA Applet and Triangle, and our new promotional documentation.

But most of all, it was mainly a great opportunity to exchange with all people interested in the possibilities of Calypso, in its philosophy of openness, security and interoperability. These informal exchanges between users and providers of Calypso or intending to use Calypso were very fruitful and allow CNA to better understand their needs.

And a press conference took place during the congress about TRIANGLE, the Calypso solution for interoperability, which be soon operational for the first time at an international level, for transborder ticketing between Lille – Nord Pas de Calais and Belgium.

CNA thanks all those who contribute or participate to these three very interesting days.
