ITSO on Mobile

ITSO understands that mobile technologies and services can transform smart ticketing in public transport and has developed a solution that emulates the ITSO smartcard on a mobile phone.

ITSO Transit Hub has developed a solution with Google to bring all of the benefits of the ITSO national smartcard to Google Pay on the mobile phone.

ITSO on Mobile will offer passengers end-to-end functionality that will allow them to plan their journeys, buy their tickets and then access their chosen modes of transport seamlessly, in a virtual 'wallet', all from the comfort and convenience of their mobile phone.


The solution architecture will be:

  • Compatible with existing ITSO infrastructure
  • Re-use existing ITSO and ‘payment style’ software modules wherever possible
  • Scalable for rapid and resilient rollout
  • Using a central ITSO-managed transit hub through which products will be channelled from operator back offices to a standard card emulation within the mobile phone.
  • Capable of integrating with operator’s existing mobile retail components
