Thames Clippers has signed a five year contract with mobile ticketing and payments firm Masabi to bring mobile ticketing to its River Bus service operating on the River Thames. The service is due to launch late spring.
Thames Clippers will use Masabi’s cloud-based, end-to-end mobile ticketing and fare collection system, JustRide, which combines apps for ticket purchase, display and validation, with back-end infrastructure for secure payments, ticket management, customer service, reporting and real-time analytics.
“The addition of mobile ticketing means that our passengers will now be able to buy their tickets anywhere, without the need to queue at ticket machines or fumble for the correct change,” said Thames Clippers CEO, Sean Collins.
Thames Clippers serves piers from Putney in the West of London through to Woolwich in the East, with a 20 minute frequency at central London piers. Masabi currently provides mobile ticketing services for the cities of Boston and San Diego in the US as well as 13 of the UK’s rail operators.
