HOUSTON - UX and Technology award
Houston is the innovating communication system crafted for the TPF (Transports Publics Fribourgeois). It is based on applications. Via VoIP, these applications ensure quality communication between the drivers and the central office. This communication system replaces the former radio system. Houston ensures a network coverage close to 100% and a better hearing quality. Mobiles phones are placed in the buses. The device uses for instance geolocalisation. Houston opens the internet of things (IoT) to public transportation.
FAIRTIQ - Innovation and Mobile award
FAIRTIQ is the easiest ticket for public transportation in Switzerland! It is also the first application in the world that allows the user to buy tickets according to the «Check- In/Assisted Check-Out» concept. So far, all passengers had to define their starting point and arrival destination before using public transportation. Thanks to FAIRTIQ. users can now check in as they hop on the bus and check out when they get out. In case they forget to check out, FAIRTIQ automatically sends a notification to the user. This notification system solves what used to be the main disadvantage of Check-In-Check-Out solutions so far. Thanks to geolocalisation, the travel is recorded and billed at the cheapest rate, according to the public transportations fare
