MILAN, Italy and FLORHAM PARK, N.J., June 14, 2023 -- Conduent Transportation, a global provider of smart mobility technology solutions and business unit of Conduent Incorporated (Nasdaq: CNDT), today announced its selection by transport operator Azienda Trasporti Verona (ATV) to provide new contactless payment technology for the public buses in Verona, Italy.
Conduent will provide contactless EMV (Europay, Mastercard and Visa) payment technology that will allow passengers to pay with debit and credit cards, as well as NFC-enabled digital wallets on board ATV buses. This month, Conduent and ATV are starting a pilot project of the EMV technology on the Airlink bus service between Verona Porta Nuova railway station and Verona airport.
Following the pilot, Conduent will provide ticket validators that will be progressively installed, starting in the fall, on the 540 buses that serve the city of Verona and suburban network.
“This is another important ticketing modernization project we’ve undertaken on the Verona and suburban bus network,” said Massimo Bettarello, President of ATV. “Technology plays an increasingly important role in making everyday tasks easier and faster, which is why we wanted to implement this Conduent Transportation technology to ensure our transportation networks and our passengers benefit from the convenience and safety of EMV technology.”
“Our teams continue to build strong relationships with transit authorities throughout Italy, particularly in the Veneto region. This is our first opportunity to work with ATV, and we are proud to be their partner,” said Lou Keyes, President of Transportation Solutions at Conduent. “Modernizing the ticketing system in Verona is a significant investment in improving the transportation experience for the traveling public. Conduent is ready to deliver the latest technology that supports the growing demand for contactless payments in transportation similar to other customer buying experiences.”
Conduent fare collection systems are in use in more than 400 public transit networks of all sizes around the world. In October 2022, Conduent was selected to provide an EMV contactless payment system for the Venice public transit network . Last month, Conduent was selected by the State of Victoria, Australia , to implement an advanced, contactless payment account-based ticketing system.
