6 September 2013 • Author: Scheidt & Bachmann GmbH
KEOLIS Germany has enhanced its sales system with a modern ticketing solution from Scheidt & Bachmann. The delivery includes a central back-end system managing all transactions, on-board and stationary ticket vending machines, and mobile terminals. The new system comes into operation within the KEOLIS Germany network during December 2013.
The modern ticket vending machines accept all popular payment methods including coins, bank notes and cashless payments. With an easy to use touch-screen display, the machines offer simple and convenient ticket purchases – on board as well as at a station. Accessibility for all is assured because the machines conform to TSI PRM standards.
KEOLIS Germany is the largest private provider of public rail transportation in North Rhine-Westphalia and operates three networks in North Rhine-Westphalia and North Hessen under the name “eurobahn”. With over 350 employees, including more than 200 train drivers and train crew, the company carries more than 70,000 travellers every day.
“We are looking forward to our new relationship with KEOLIS Germany and we are proud that our innovative ticketing solution convinced the private operator”, says Stefan Brings, Sales Director at Scheidt & Bachmann.
