Cashback has been extended to transport through AEP Ticketing Solutions, a specialist company in electronic ticketing with over 600 customers in public transport.

The purchase of virtual tickets on board is now possible in many cities thanks due to the ticketing systems designed and built by the Florentine company, systems that are also sold in several countries all over the world. The basis of this purchase method is the use of an EMV contactless bankcard.

In Italy, there are already many cities that have adopted electronic ticketing systems from AEP, starting from Florence (Ataf), Bologna (Tper), Turin (Gtt), Lucca (Ctt Nord), continuing through Siena and San Gimignano up to Arezzo and Grosseto (with Tiemme spa).

CEO Giovanni Becattini stated: “Another important step forward in the operational streamlining of the electronic ticketing system has been taken. Users have now one more reason to buy a ticket on board the means of transport with our electronic ticketing systems.

“Those who opt for this choice will be entitled to receive back an amount corresponding to the 10% of the cost of the ticket, as foreseen by the State Cashback programme. In plus, they can also avoid queuing to physically purchase their own ticket. The latter is an equally important aspect in this particular period of pandemic, when every possible effort is made at any level to prevent gatherings.”
