Accrington-based bus operator Pilkington Bus has become the first school bus service in the UK to introduce a self-scan mobile ticketing system which alerts parents and guardians that their child has safely boarded the vehicle.
The system uses UrbanThings’ smart ticketing solution Ticketless which consists of a mobile app coupled with a cloud-based mobility platform.
Ticketless uses Hex Tag technology which allows passengers to purchase tickets through the app then scan a unique QR code when boarding the vehicle to validate their ticket. As the QR code is placed on the vehicle parents receive an instant notification . . .
