SIA logoSIA, in collaboration with Ferrotramviaria and Tecknè, has developed a new contactless payment service, Paga e via, for travelers using the rail service connecting Karol Wojtyla International Airport and Bari city center. The new service is expected to allow users to pay for tickets in digitally and access trains by tapping their payment card (Mastercard or VISA) on one of the turnstile readers or totems in the stations and, in case of inspection, on the readers used by staff.

“Ferrotramviaria, attentive to innovation in technology and tariff integration systems, continues its collaboration with SIA and Tecknè in a new challenge aimed at improving the relationship with its customers by simplifying mobility with the introduction of new payment methods. This is why it has entrusted SIA with the management of fast, secure transactions for the payment of tickets when using the transport system by which users can avoid queues or buy tickets in advance and pay directly when accessing the train platform,” said Massimo Nitti, General Manager of Ferrotramviaria.

The companies stated that the new system is based on the technology infrastructure developed by SIA and Tecknè that, in full compliance with the highest standards of security and confidentiality. It also aims to offer a unique payment experience to all users of the service who no longer have to worry about finding a point of sale at which to purchase tickets, choosing the type of ticket, or validating it before boarding the trains.

“Thanks to SIA’s technology, Ferrotramviaria is the first transport company in the Puglia region and one of the first at national level to adopt an advanced payment system for public transport. Bari thus joins the other cities that, using our platform, with the digitization of tickets, have undertaken a path of smart mobility. The hope is that this initiative will be able to integrate all regional transport and permit electronic payments to become increasingly present in the everyday life of citizens,” commented Eugenio Tornaghi, Marketing & Sales Director of SIA.

“With the launch of the Ferrotramviaria initiative, we have taken another step towards mobility that is simple, secure, free of issues with ticket booking and purchasing, with a universal payment system enabling full interoperability among public transport providers,” said Pierluigi Ceseri, Sole Director of Tecknè.
