Using the smartphone for public transport is becoming more and more popular all over the world. In almost all cases, electronic tickets are purchased via apps, which are displayed and checked as 2D barcodes. In order to prevent barcodes from being copied and to guarantee fast, secure and automated control, VDV eTicket Service (VDV-ETS) has developed the VDV mobile+ barcode. In this context, VDV-ETS has commissioned the International Data Corporation (IDC) with a worldwide status analysis to check whether there are other security technologies for eTickets on the smartphone.
IDC analyzed 184 international transportation companies. Of these, eight transport companies were subsequently identified, representing the wide variety of technological developments. Extensive interviews were conducted with decision-makers from these eight companies in order to clarify how the current status and future development of the electronic ticket are viewed.
