Mastercard, Ubirider, Digtial payment solution, PortugalUbirider, the Portugal-based maker of the mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) platform Pick, has entered into an agreement with Mastercard to offer innovative digital solutions that combine operational, payment, and ticketing resources data for public transport agencies.

Through this partnership, Mastercard and Ubirider look to expand on the existing products in Portugal by simplifying access and payments for mobility services. The MaaS platform Pick, which comprises mobile applications, cloud software, and web portals, incorporates payment technologies that benefit both users and operators.

“Mastercard works with partners around the world to help people move around urban environments seamlessly. In that spirit, we partnered with Ubirider both because their digital and multi-modal solutions align closely with our vision and because the Ubirider platform directly addresses rapidly evolving user and transit operator needs,” said Chapin Flynn, senior vice president, Transit and Mobility of Mastercard.

In July, in partnership with Mastercard, Ubirider implemented in the city of Évora, the first Tap-on-Phone traffic application incorporated into its app for bus drivers. The app, named ‘Pick Driver’ allowed the acceptance of contactless payments onboard buses operated by Trevo, the city’s main transport operator. The partnership also saw Fertagus, the operator of suburban trains in Lisbon, adopt the Pick platform.

“We have been working with Mastercard for some time in Portugal and this agreement is the result of successful cases that we have achieved together, but also of the conviction that our digital mobility-as-a-service platform, Pick, is ready to compete successfully around the world,” said Paulo Ferreira dos Santos, CEO and Founder of Ubirider.

“The relationship with Mastercard allows Ubirider to continue to incorporate advanced technologies of payments and allows us a global reach in terms of market opportunities. Our focus is on improving everything that involves the offer of transport, which includes significantly improving the user experience, making it more integrated and simpler for individuals.”
