Increased Popularity of Automatic Ticket Machines with Digital Payment Options is Upholding the Market Growth
Prominent players are integrating ATMs with digital payment solutions to reduce heavy rush on ticket counters. They are also constantly incorporating digital payment options to gain real-time consumer data. The sudden rise in passengers travelling via airplane and railways across the globe has supported the increased popularity of automated tickets generated by smart cards while travelling. Moreover, countries including India, Hungary, South Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia, and others are witnessing high adoption of E-tickets generated via digital mode of payment in the entertainment sector. This is owing to the introduction of touch screen based ticketing kiosks across the public transport sector, public access points, and the entertainment & gaming sector. This allows end-users to generate paper tickets or E-tickets.

The companies will unify their expertise on the smart card and mobile ticketing standard, CIPURSE™, to provide wide choice of ticketing solutions to end-users.
April 2019: The American transportation company, Cubic Corporation, was awarded a contract worth USD 4 million by Ireland’s National Transport Authority (NTA) for the delivery of a mobile ticketing solution for the country.
