Transit using buses

Our experience

We at Consult Hyperion have extensive experience in advising on ticketing and payment solutions for Mobility services, and supporting their development:

  • Transit Agencies: We were the technical consultants at the heart of the original design and development of the London solution. We have since gone on to advise many others across the globe (see map below).
  • International Payment Networks: Following the success in London, we were asked to write the specifications for many of the open payments transit models for the international Payment Networks.
  • System Integrators: As impartial advisers with no products of our own, we work with transit scheme integrators, helping them understand how to add leading edge technologies into their solutions, and sometimes on the client side, keeping technology providers honest.
  • MaaS / MoD / Ticketing Providers: Our deep understanding of the secure payment technologies makes us ideally placed to advise on the integration of various payment instruments into Mobility as a Service and Mobility on Demand schemes.
