GUILHERAND-GRANGES, France and FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Nov. 15, 2023 -- Conduent Transportation, a global provider of smart mobility technology solutions and business unit of Conduent Incorporated (Nasdaq: CNDT), today announced that it, along with partners Visa and Caisse d’Epargne CEPAC, are implementing a contactless open payment system for the Aix-Marseille-Provence Métropole on the Marseille public transport network that includes buses, coaches, trams and a metro railway. Marseille is the second largest city in France, and the Aix-Marseille-Provence Métropole is the country’s largest métropole, or urban agglomeration, with a population of over 1.8 million.
The new system will allow passengers to pay with contactless debit and credit cards, as well as NFC-enabled digital wallets. Testing of the system took place on selected lines during July, and the system is now gradually being rolled out network-wide.
“The Aix-Marseille-Provence Métropole has initiated a real transport revolution with the introduction of contactless open payment on the Marseille public transport network,” said Martine Vassal, President of the Aix-Marseille-Provence Métropole. “We hope that the system’s ease of use will encourage more people to use our public transport system.”
“We value our long-term relationship with the Aix-Marseille-Provence Métropole, and the opportunity, working with Visa and Caisse d’Epargne CEPAC, to implement an advanced contactless open payment system on the Marseille public transport network that will deliver a simpler and faster user experience,” said Adam Appleby, President, Transportation Solutions at Conduent. “Leveraging Conduent’s technology and expertise, transportation authorities around the world are modernizing their networks to meet the needs of passengers who are increasingly more reliant on technology-based solutions for everyday transactions.”
Conduent fare collection systems are in use on more than 400 public transit networks of all sizes around the world. In June, Conduent announced that it had been selected by transport operator Azienda Trasporti Verona (ATV) to provide new contactless payment technology for the public buses in Verona, Italy. In May, Conduent was selected by the State of Victoria, Australia , to implement an advanced, contactless payment account-based ticketing system.
