Imatra has taken PayiQ Tickets ticketing service into use this summer. The new generation mobile ticket is an economical and easy way to use public transport in different parts of Finland.
“Local traffic’s mobile ticket is an easy option when you have to get to a bus in a hurry or you don’t have ready cash. You can get a single ticket or a 30 day season ticket on your mobile phone while waiting for the bus. At first the app can be used to buy single tickets for adults, children and pensioners, and 30 days season tickets for adults, children and youth.” says Imatra’s Acting City Engineer Päivi Pekkanen.
Mobile tickets are bought with PayiQ Tickets app that can be downloaded for free for smart phones from Google Play and App Store. The mobile app supports all the most common payment methods, for example operator billing and bank and credit cards.
“The fourth generation Ticketing as a Service platform that we have developed enables a new era in providing services and ticketing products. With our technology it is easier than ever before to move over from traditional tickets to dynamic ticketing products and services, and to create innovative service concepts. PayiQ Tickets’ key benefits to customers are its easiness and simplicity – since everything can be handled with a mobile phone app there is no longer use for different apps, travel cards and their loading.” says PayiQ’s CEO Tuomo Parjanen.
PayiQ Tickets app can be used to buy ticket products outside of Imatra too. The app already includes tickets for Jyväskylä,Kuopio, Lahti, Lappeenranta, Oulu, Salo and Turku public transport and more cities and routes are constantly added to the product selection.
