Bern, 06.12.2023. FAIRTIQ, a leading mobile ticketing provider, is set to deliver a digital solution for Denmark's esteemed "Rejsekort" system. Rejsekort & Rejseplan A/S, responsible for the operation of Rejsekort on behalf of the Public Transport Authorities in Denmark, has chosen the Swiss technology company as the preferred partner for developing an advanced mobile PAYG (Pay-as-you-go) national public transport ticketing solution for Denmark.
FAIRTIQ has won against international competition in a multi-stage procurement process. The company was able to demonstrate the effectiveness of its market-proven and fully hardware-free Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, known for its reliability and user-friendly interface. Providing the backbone of the Danish public transport ticketing system means a whole new dimension for FAIRTIQ.
"We are delighted that the whole of Denmark will soon be able to use public transport with a swipe. This success shows that our technology developed in Switzerland is also in high demand internationally," says FAIRTIQ founder and co-CEO Gian-Mattia Schucan, whose 130-strong team is constantly working on further innovations.
A significant milestone of this collaboration is the forthcoming introduction of a fully digital national solution that will enable users to use buses, trains, metros and light rail throughout the whole of Denmark seamlessly. With FAIRTIQ's solution, accessibility and convenience are set to redefine the public transport experience. The smartphone-based solution will gradually replace the card-based Check-in/Check-out solution with currently almost 500.000 journeys per day. The phased roll-out will start in 2024. The deployment in Denmark will mark the fourth national implementation of the Check-In/Out system based on FAIRTIQ’s technology, joining the ranks of Switzerland, Austria, and Liechtenstein.
