Ingenico Group to join Visa Ready for Transit programme

Ingenico Group (Euronext: FR0000125346 – ING), the global leader in seamless payment, is proud to join Visa Ready for Transit programme and to collaborate with the Visa Global Transit team, ticketing integrators and transit operators to create the best experience for public transport users.

Preparing the launch of its dedicated hardware and service solutions for 2019, Ingenico has joined the Visa Ready for Transit programme to accelerate the deployment of seamless, frictionless commuting systems, using contactless payments.  

Ingenico is developing a range of terminals specifically designed to meet the transportation market requirements. Integrated into the main ticketing platforms, Ingenico’s payment terminals combine security, speed and robustness to process closed- and open-loop cards.

Leveraging Ingenico’s payment gateway, these new terminals will allow easier access to public transport, improve operators' quality of service and lower their operating costs. This will also increase the operational performance of existing systems.

After several first implementations of its transit and Open Payment solutions in Milan, Kiev, Bratislava and Eastern Europe, Ingenico is keen to share its payment expertise and support business development activities allowing transport authorities and ticketing integrators to deploy contactless payment acceptance faster.

As part of Ingenico Group’s strategy to deploy a new Open Payment offer on a global scale, we are excited to become a Visa Ready solution partner. Both organizations will benefit from the expertise and experience of each other to foster open payment and the acceptance of closed- and open-loop cards. Being Visa Ready certified will definitely open us new gates to enlarge our business worldwide!’ said Venceslas Cartier, Head of Transportation & Vending at Ingenico Group.

Ingenico will take part in the Visa Digitalize Public Transportation event dedicated to Open Payment in Paris today.
