Deutsche Bahn abandons NFC, aims for location-based ticketing

Monday 29 August 2016 | 12:58 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
The mobile ticket for German trains celebrates its tenth anniversary. The Handyticket was launched on 1 September, 2006. The scheme was developed for feature phones, but has been developed further and integrated with iOS and Android apps. Consumer adoption however is still low compared to paper tickets. The Touch&Travel NFC technology has become end-of-life. The system was launched in 2007, but failed to win many customers.
